One person has been killed and 14 others injured in a mass shooting at a nightclub called the Cameo Club on Kellogg Avenue in Cincinnati, Ohio, according to media reports.
Police in Cincinnati say there were "at least a couple of shooters" who opened fire inside of a nightclub.
Captain Kim Williams says authorities are not sure what prompted the shooting, reports AP. She says the crowd there on Saturday nights is often very young, and they have had trouble in the past, but "this is the worst by far."
The police added that since the motive is unclear there’s no reason to suspect terrorism at this point.
