Police: 17 shot, some dead across 3 Cincinnati, Ohio shootings

CINCINNATI (AP) — Police in Cincinnati said 17 people — including some likely fatalities — were shot at three separate locations early Sunday morning.

In one shooting alone in the city’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, 10 people were shot, with two possibly dead, Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate told news outlets.

In the Walnut Hills neighborhood, about a block away from the Harriet Beecher Stowe house, three people were shot. And, in the Avondale neighborhood, four people were shot, including two who police said might be dead.

News outlets reported the shootings took place within 60 to 90 minutes of each other, but Neudigate said they “seem to be separate independent incidents but horrific and tragic.”

No suspect information was immediately available.

“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,” Neudigate said.

In July, the Enquirer reportedthat the city had experienced a rise in shootings and homicides from gun violence during the first half of the year as compared to the same time period in 2019.
