A tragic shooting at a hip hop nightclub in Ohio has left at least one person dead, over dozen more injured, and has ignited a massive manhunt for the shooter.
The scene at The Cameo Club in Cincinnati was hectic. Late into the night, partygoers were given only an instant to react after a club DJ called for security. Seconds later, shots began to ring out throughout the club, sending patrons scattering and panicking. As of this writing, there is one confirmed fatality and 14 more injured, with several club goers undergoing surgery for their injuries.
“What was supposed to be a fun Saturday night at the Cameo Club in the city, turned into a death trap as everyone in the place began running for their lives after a man entered and opened fire on patrons inside. One victim is dead, another is in critical condition, and thirteen more are wounded and receiving treatment for their injuries at an area hospital that’s become a revolving door of Cameo Club victims.
“Although investigators don’t believe that this was an act of Islamic terrorism, as was seen the in the Orlando night club, they don’t have their suspect in custody yet, nor has a motive been determined, Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said in a tweet, according to the Daily Mail. Just days after a terror attack struck London, the people of Ohio are rightfully terrified since the shooter remains at large with unclear motives about where he’ll turn up next.
“The shooting took place at about 1:30 am on Sunday morning inside the club where hundreds of people were subject to this shooter’s wrath in a what devolved into a ‘chaotic crime scene.’ Police are desperate to speak to those who ran and got away as they seek answers into the shooter’s identity and information about what they witnessed. It has yet to be determined if surveillance cameras were working at the time.”
Police are asking anyone with information on the shooter or the incident to come forward and assist with their investigation. In the mean time, an enormous manhunt is underway for the yet-to-be-identified suspect in the slaying.
