Cincinnati Shooting Today — Just before six o’clock on Saturday evening, April 15th, 2023, Cincinnati Police responded to calls reporting many victims shot in the city center. According to the police, three individuals with non-life-threatening wounds were found in and around Piatt Park. This does not seem to be a random shooting, says Lt. David Schofield. He claimed that a man approached a group of individuals as they were enjoying a night at the park. Shots were fired after an incident got started.
Police stated that they are searching the area for the attacker, who is still at large, by analyzing surveillance footage, speaking with witnesses, and canvassing it.

In a mass shooting early on August 7, 2022, in Cincinnati’s downtown, at least nine individuals were hurt, according to authorities. Officer Joe Shook, a member of the Cincinnati Police Department since 2016, fired a shot as the shooter was actively firing, Lt. Col. Mike John said at a press conference. He continued that it was unknown if the shooter was hit by the gunshot. He said that no one was in custody and that the shooter fled.
John stated at a second news conference later on Sunday that more rounds were fired after the shooter escaped, prompting authorities to suspect there were at least two gunmen. None of the victims were “in critical condition, and most of those injuries are lower extremity injuries,” the witness stated. By Sunday morning, all nine victims had been discharged from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to hospital spokeswoman Heather Chura Smith.
The ages of the victims ranged from 23 to 47, according to John: eight men and a woman. According to authorities, the incident began as a physical argument between two groups, The Enquirer said. An inquiry for comment was not immediately answered by a police department spokesman. He claimed that officers used “two bang balls” in the air to disperse the enormous crowd that had formed rapidly so that the injured could be treated by emergency personnel.
John stated that investigators were canvassing the location and looking for witnesses, adding that the guy who police encountered was wearing a white shirt and dark jeans according to early information. He added that video would also be examined. John lauded the cop who returned fire, Shook, stating that his efforts saved lives. In a different event in Cincinnati’s Central Business District, at least two people were shot, according to John. He said nothing about whether the shootings were connected, and he gave no details about the victims’ conditions or any suspects.
