Never bet against Dindus when the bullets have been flying. Yes, some Tweeters speculated a terror attack took place on Saturday night, but the odds highly favor the Dindu. In this case, police have ruled out terrorism, while noting that there have been “problems” at the club before.
CINCINNATI — Fifteen people were shot and one was killed in a shooting at a Cincinnati nightclub early Sunday. Police said there’s no indication the crime is an act of terror.
The Cincinnati Police Department Homicide Unit was called to Cameo Night Club, a large, warehouse-style venue on Kellogg Avenue near the Ohio River, sometimes after 1 a.m.
There was one reported shooter, Lt. Col. Paul Neudigate said.
Cincinnati police don’t have a description of the suspect, and Capt. Kimberly Williams said police were having trouble getting witnesses to cooperate.
“I do believe it was a very large crowd earlier this evening when it started,” Williams said. “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.”
According to ABC News, Cincinnati Police Sgt. Eric E. Franz called the situation a “large and complicated homicide scene.”
“There was a shooting here this morning around one o’clock in the morning,” he said. “We have 14 people that have been injured from gunfire, one of which is deceased.”
Eight of the victims were taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center; one victim was in critical condition, three were in serious condition, and four were stable. Two were taken to The Christ Hospital; both had minor injuries and were in stable condition. Franz said other victims were taken to Bethesda North Hospital, Mercy West Hospital and Anderson Mercy Hospital.
Williams said there have been “multiple problems” at Cameo in the past. There was security at the club early Sunday.
Cameo Night Club describes itself on its Facebook page as providing entertainment and excitement to the Tri-State. The Facebook page says the club is restricted to people 21 and up on Saturday nights and is open until 4 a.m. Sunday. It was previously called Club Cameo, and before that, a gay club called Adonis.
Kellogg Avenue will remain closed near the club for several hours Sunday morning.
