17 people shot, at least 3 dead in multiple shootings across Cincinnati

 


CINCINNATI —

At least three people are dead after at least 17 were shot overnight Sunday in three separate shootings that happened within hours of each other across Cincinnati.

The first shooting took place in Walnut Hills around 12 a.m. on Lincoln and Gilbert avenues. Police said three people were shot. There is no word on their conditions.

The second shooting took place around 1 a.m. when four people were shot on Chalfonte Avenue in Avondale. At least one person was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cincinnati Police Criminal Investigations Section.

The third shooting took place around the same time at 1 a.m. on McMicken Avenue and Lang Street, where 10 people were shot. Two of the 10 shooting victims have been pronounced dead, according to the Cincinnati Police Criminal Investigations Section.

Several of the shooting victims were taken to UC Medical Center, police said.

"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," Asst. Chief Paul 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.
