15 people shot, 1 killed at Cincinnati nightclub

Police continue to search for suspects in the shooting early on Sunday.

Reportedly, the nightclub was extremely crowded Saturday going into Sunday morning.

The shooting took place around 1:30 AM ET at Cameo nightclub.

Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said that several of the victims were badly injured.

A single body was removed by the coroner shortly after 6 a.m. He said the shooting did not appear to be terrorism related, a fact that will provide little consolation to the victims.

Police upped the number of shooting victims in Sunday morning's nightclub shooting to 17, and said that surveillance video from inside of the club will likely not be a part of their investigation.

"These violations themselves are not very uncommon to get in a bar", said Agent Adam Johnson.

Fourteen people were injured and one person is dead after a shooting at the Cameo Night Club in the East End Sunday morning. Four are in stable condition, three are in serious condition and one is in critical condition.

He said the bar does have internal security which typically pats down customers and uses metal detecting wands to search for weapons. Two teen girls died and seven other people were hurt in a 2009 shooting outside an underage nightclub in Portland, Oregon. Forman said he's not aware of plans yet to look at Cameo's license.

"It was a big gun because you heard it over the music", said Mauricio Thompson, who said he's from Cleveland.


Two victims remain in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Four officers were working security in the club's parking lot and some tried unsuccessfully to revive the man who died. Police believe that multiple people fired shots.

Authorities asked anyone with information on the shooting to come forward. Cameo will remain closed until both our management completes our own investigation and the Cincinnati Police Department completes their investigation. It calls him "Father Son Uncle Brother".

The Cameo club was dark inside, with a piece of yellow crime tape wrapped over its front door.

Officials updated public officials on the shooting Monday afternoon during a meeting of Cincinnati's Law and Public Safety Committee.

Isaac said some of the wounded could be key witnesses, and city officials urged any reluctant potential witnesses to help, saying they would be protected.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is helping Cincinnati police with the investigation.

One patient was treated for a gunshot wound and released from Anderson Hospital, said Nanette Bentley, hospital spokeswoman.

Rob Richardson Jr., another mayoral candidate, said it hits close to home, as he has younger family members who attend the club.

O'Bryan Spikes, 27, was killed in the incident, and the way that his death was reported on one local TV station has really caused a stir.

The city said in a tweet the conflict apparently began "between specific groups of individuals earlier in the day, escalating to the nightclub tragedy".
