9 Shot at Gender-Reveal Party; 1 Person Dead

A mass shooting near Cincinnati Saturday night left a woman dead and eight others wounded, including three children. The shooting took place about 11:20pm in Colerain Township inside a home where a gender-reveal party for a baby-to-be had been held earlier that day, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer. Based on 911 calls, it appears that two hooded men entered the home and opened fire before fleeing. "Two guys just came in and shot people in the house," one woman who was outside in her car told the 911 dispatcher. "They just ran in and started shooting. There's a pregnant girl here."

The injuries to the three children were not considered life-threatening, and only one of the adult survivors had serious injuries. One of the 911 callers said she was pregnant but had lost her baby after being shot in the leg, reports WCPO. Authorities say the victims appear to have been watching a movie when the shooting started. Police have made no arrests but were tracking down leads. They haven't speculated about a motive.
