Ohio shooting: 1 killed, 13 injured at Cincinnati nightclub, says police

15 people shot, 1 dead at Cincinnati nightclub

Numerous victims taken to area hospitals have life-threatening injuries.

The deceased man was identified as O'Bryan Spikes, 27, and one of the injuries is considered critical.

"The is no evidence that this was a terrorist attack, like we had seen in Miami", Mayor John Cranley said during the Sunday morning press briefing.

"To the victims, what difference does it make?"

"Many of them fled, unfortunately". "When you starting throwing lead around, and there's a lot of other people standing around, then the other people are going to get hit". "That's totally unacceptable. It's totally evil". Police have received multiple witness accounts and are working to determine what is actually fact, according to Isaac. Police said the suspect appeared to have "mental issues".

Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate confirmed this.

City Manager Harry Black calls the event "horrific".

Cameo Nightlife's Facebook page says it features "College Friday's" for students 18 and older and "Saturday's 21+ grown and sexy night".

Other incidents have been reported at the club in the past, but Sunday morning's shooting "is the worst by far", Capt. Kimberly Williams told WXIX. "But just a lot of chaos, obviously, when the shots went off - people just trying to get out of the way, get out of harm's way". In September of that same year, a shooting victim was found in the club's parking lot.

Ohio Governor John Kasich said his office was offering help to local authorities.

The shooting comes less than a year after a gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people.

Tragedy has struck the city of Cincinnati, Ohio. It was the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter, the deadliest incident of violence against the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Trans community in U.S. history and the deadliest terrorist attack in the United States since September 11, 2001. Earlier reports also indicated that only one gunman was involved, but Isaac confirmed later Sunday that the gunfire came from multiple shooters.

Cincinnati Police Lt. Steve Saunders said he received calls from an Australian consulate and from other countries, such as Germany and Canada, concerned that their citizens could have been hurt.
