According to Cincinnati police, “at least a couple of shooters” killed one person and injured 15 others in a nightclub at approximately 1:30 a.m. on Sunday.
“We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims,” Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate told reporters. “It’s going to be a long night for our homicide units to investigate.”
At least one of the wounded is in critical condition, according to reports.
Authorities do not yet know what prompted the shooting, and Neudigate tweeted, “There are no indications this incident is terrorism related.”
Update: Motive is still unclear but there are no indications this incident is terrorism related.

The chaotic nature of the scene caused nightclub goers to flee, making it more difficult for police to talk to witnesses, so they’re asking that anyone with information come forward. At this point, there are no suspects.
