At least nine people were injured in a shooting in downtown Cincinnati early Sunday, police said.

Multiple shots were fired into a large crowd, John said. The gunshot victims were taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

A Cincinnati police officer, who was on scene at the time, shot at a suspect, but it’s unclear whether that individual was hit, John said. The suspect is not in custody.
