Two men are facing murder charges stemming from Sunday’s mass shooting inside Cincinnati’s Cameo nightclub, and Police Chief Eliot Isaac said, “there will be more arrests to come.” The investigation continues into the worst mass shooting in the city’s history, in which 17 people were shot, one of them fatally. One suspect was arrested at a home yesterday. The second suspect, was injured in the shooting and remains hospitalized in critical condition, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Isaac said an altercation started inside Cameo nightclub and turned into a gun battle involving more than two people. Most of the victims were patrons of the club and not involved in the fight. The arrests are “very good news out of a very bad situation,” Mayor John Cranley said. “This is a tragedy of epic proportions. It’s the worst mass shooting in the history of the city… we have to figure out a way to get guns off the street and teach people not to resolve disputes with guns.”
