According to police, 15 people were shot after a gunman opened fire in a Cincinnati nightclub early Sunday morning (March 26). A manhunt is on for the shooter.
The number of victims could rise, however, because people were traveling to hospitals on their own, Cincinnati police Capt. Kim Williams said.
NBC affiliate WLWT reported that police officers outside the club heard gunshots around 1 a.m., as the Cameo Night Club was closing.
Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate has tweeted that there was “only one reported shooter,” and that police are “still investigating if others [are] involved.”
Police have not released any description of the suspect or suspects involved.
On certain nights the club admits people age 18 and above. “Saturday nights it’s a very young crowd,” Williams said. “We have had incidents here in the past, but … this is the worst by far,” she told reporters.
Prayers up to all the victims.
