One person died and at least 15 injured in a shooting at a nightclub in Cincinnati in Ohio, US.

The incident occurred in Cameo Night Club on Kellogg Avenue.


"It's a chaotic crime scene. We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims," WLWT quoted Cincinnati assistant police chief Paul Neudigate as saying. "It's going to be a long night for our homicide units to investigate." 

The accused hasn't been nabbed yet. 

The police officer said they have launched an investigation.

He said hundreds of people were in the Cameo nightclub when the shooting broke out.

“Many of them fled, unfortunately. Many of the witnesses fled, but everyone that we can identify is being interviewed,” Neudigate further said.

Neudigate, who has worked in the police department for over two decades, said Sunday's shooting was the worst he has witnessed.
