Isaac said the shooting, which is not terrorism related, was reported just after 1am as police believe multiple shots were fired from more than one firearm. No arrests have been made related to the incident.  

‘The conflict is believed to have begun between specific groups or individuals earlier in the day, escalating and ultimately leading to this tragedy occurring at the nightclub,’ Cincinnati City Manager Harry Black said.

Multiple partygoers shot by gunman in Cincinnati nightclub

Two victims were treated and released from Bethesda North Hospital, while two more are in stable condition at Christ Hospital. 

One victim was treated and released from Mercy Anderson and another was also treated and released from Mercy West. 

No details have been released on the types of injuries or the identities of the shooting victims.

It’s unclear how firearms were allowed inside the venue, as Issac said that every person inside the club should have been checked by security to see if they were carrying weapons.

Several officers were working security detail at the club and performed first aid and tried to revive Spikes.  

Earlier Sunday morning, Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said: ‘We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims.

‘It’s going to be a long night for our homicide units to investigate.’ 

Capt. Kim Williams said there was ‘just a lot of chaos, obviously, when shots were fired.


‘Saturday night, it is a very young crowd. We have had incidents here in the past, but this is by far the worst.’
