One person killed 15 others were injured at Cameo Night Club


The Cincinnati Police Department Homicide Unit was called to Cameo Night Club, a large, warehouse-style venue on Kellogg Avenue near the Ohio River, at about 2:20 a.m.
Mauricio Thompson said a "mini brawl" broke out inside.
"Within that mini brawl, maybe like 20 shots been fired -- people running, dodging, trying to get out of the way," he said.
"Once I got outside, people coming out bloody, gunshot wounds on them, some of their friends carrying them to the car, rushing them to the hospital. It was just crazy."

Obryan Spikes, 27, died in the shooting. At least 15 others were shot, and one of those people is in "extremely critical condition," Cincinnati police Chief Eliot Isaac said.
There were several others who were injured, as well.
Some of the victims were taken to area hospitals via ambulance, and others arrived via their own conveyance, police said.

Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said that several of the victims have life-threatening injuries.
“We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims,” Neudigate said. “It’s going to be a long night for our homicide units to investigate.”
Of nine victims taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, police said two people are in critical condition and seven people are stable. Five of the seven stable patients are expected to be released soon.
Police have not said whether anyone is in custody, and the investigation is ongoing. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is helping Cincinnati police with this investigation.
Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the shooting death, he tweeted Sunday.
