Austin American-Statesman - - MORE OF TODAY’S TOP NEWS -

As Cincin­nati po­lice delved fur­ther into their in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a night­club shoot­ing melee that left one per­son dead and 16 in­jured, city of­fi­cials Mon­day urged more wit­nesses to come for­ward and of­fered re­as­sur­ances amid ques­tions about safety in pub­lic gath­er­ing spots.

Po­lice Chief Eliot Isaac de­clined to say whether po­lice have iden­ti­fied pos­si­ble sus­pects in the Sun­day gun vi­o­lence in­side the Cameo club, a pop­u­lar hiphop mu­sic spot near the Ohio river east of down­town Cincin­nati. But Isaac said po­lice weren’t ac­tively look­ing for any­one as yet.

“We’re gath­er­ing in­for­ma­tion . ... We’re mak­ing some progress,” Isaac said af­ter giv­ing city coun­cil mem­bers an up­date.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve mul­ti­ple shoot­ers were in­volved; po­lice es­ti­mate more than 20 shots were fired, send­ing club pa­trons scram­bling.
