15 people shot, 1 killed at Cincinnati nightclub

CINCINNATI (AP)  The Latest on the nightclub shooting in Cincinnati (all times local):

11:15 a.m.

A hospital spokeswoman says five people among those injured in the Cincinnati nightclub shooting have been treated at University of Cincinnati Medical Center and released.

Kelly Martin says two others are in critical condition and another two people are listed in stable condition.

Police say shooting broke out about 2:20 a.m. Sunday at the Cameo club, killing one person and injuring 14 others.

At a news conference, Police Chief Eliot Isaac said several people were involved in what he referred to as a conflict that led to the shooting.

10:40 a.m.

Cincinnati city officials plan an 11 a.m. press conference on what the city manager calls a “horrific” overnight nightclub shooting that left one dead and 14 people injured.

City Manager Harry Black says police are devoting “all necessary resources” to the case and the investigation is continuing.

It isn’t believed to be terrorism-related. Authorities say a conflict between at least two people and possibly groups earlier Saturday apparently escalated into gunfire that erupted at 2:20 a.m. Sunday.

Black commends first responders who “handled a very difficult situation extremely well.”

There was a shooting inside the club on New Year’s Day in 2015 and in the parking lot in September that same year.

9:30 a.m.

A hospital spokeswoman says eight among those injured in the Cincinnati nightclub shooting are being treated at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

The Sunday morning shooting at the Cameo club left one person dead and more than a dozen injured.

Hospital spokeswoman Kelly Martin says one person is in critical condition at the Medical Center, three others are in serious condition, and four are listed as stable.

She had no details on the types of injuries or the ages of the victims.

Police haven’t released any information on possible suspects or whether they have determined the motive for the assault. They say there is no evidence the shooting is terrorism related.

7:50 a.m.

Police are now saying only one shooter was responsible for the deadly Cincinnati nightclub assault.

Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate says in a tweet there was only one reported shooter but police are still investigating. Police earlier had said “at least a couple of shooters” opened fire inside the Cameo club early Sunday, killing one person and wounding more than a dozen others.

The motive for the shooting remains unclear, and Neudigate says there is no indication the attack is terrorism related.

The shooting occurred on a busy night. Capt. Kim Williams says the crowd there is often very young on Saturday nights and they have had trouble in the past, but “this is the worst by far.”

A coroner removed a body from the scene shortly after 6 a.m.

6:45 a.m.
