At least 17 people shot at 3 locations in Cincinnati: police

Police in Cincinnati said 17 people — including some likely fatalities — were shot at three separate locations early Sunday morning.

In one shooting alone in the city’s Over-the-Rhine neighbourhood, 10 people were shot, with two possibly dead, Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate told news outlets.

In the Walnut Hills neighbourhood, about a block away from the Harriet Beecher Stowe house, three people were shot. And, in the Avondale neighbourhood, four people were shot, including two who police said might be dead.

News outlets reported the shootings took place within 60 to 90 minutes of each other, but Neudigate said they “seem to be separate independent incidents but horrific and tragic.”

No suspect information was immediately available.

“One extremely violent night in the city of Cincinnati. Looking at possibly 17 victims, up to four that could be fatal at this time. Why? That’s going to be the question,” Neudigate said.

There is no suspect information in any of the shootings and police said they believe all of the shootings are unrelated.

"Not that we have any information that they're tied together. These all seem to be separate independent incidents but horrific and tragic that we have this much violence and potential for that much loss of life in our city," Neudigate said.
