Surveillance video captures initial panic following overnight shooting in Over-the-Rhine

CINCINNATI —Surveillance video shows the initial panic of many patrons along Main Street as shots began to ring out overnight in Over-the-Rhine early Sunday morning.

At least nine people were shot, police said in an update early Sunday morning.

Cincinnati police said it happened at the corner of 13th and Main streets around 1:30 a.m. According to police, that’s where one person fired into a crowd outside a bar.

Authorities say the shooting occurred in the aftermath of an altercation between two groups, in which two people took out guns.

Officials said a police officer discharged their weapon while responding to the scene. Police say they do not know if the shooter was hit but did say the shooter was actively shooting when the officer fired at them.

All of the victims were found at the scene at the corner of 13th and Main streets.

Police said none of the victim’s injuries were life-threatening.

Video shows multiple people standing outside of and passing by The Hub when, all of a sudden, people begin to run by or into the Over-the-Rhine bar.

The Hub owner Lindsey Swadner told WLWT that she heard upwards of 30 shots in two different rounds and said The Hub had not only bar patrons but people near the area looking for cover come in.

A second camera angle, this one looking down from the archway, shows people rushing into the bar, and the bar’s door closing shut for an extra layer of security.
