Police respond to early morning gunfire in Cincinnati

6 reported wounded after altercation


CINCINNATI — Police in Cincinnati are trying to sort out who was behind gunfire that left multiple people hurt outside what officials described as an after-hours establishment.

Cincinnati TV stations report the initial investigation indicates six people were shot early Sunday morning. The injured were taken to hospitals in ambulances and private vehicles.

WCPO-TV reports officials said at least two of the wounded were in critical condition.

The station says police were searching for one suspected shooter but had not publicly identified or described that person.

Officials at the scene told reporters an apparent altercation inside the building led to shots being fired inside and outside of the facility.

Police were not immediately available to comment on the details of what happened.
