One killed, 14 injured in Cincinnati nightclub shooting.......

One person was killed and 14 others injured when gunfire broke out at a nightclub in Cincinnati early Sunday, police said.
The shooting occurred at Cameo Night Club just after 1 a.m. ET, CNN affiliate WLWT reported.
Several people are currently in surgery, Cincinnati Police Sgt. Eric Franz told CNN. Police do not have any suspects in custody, but are interviewing witnesses.

While the motive is unclear, there's no reason to suspect terrorism at this point, Franz said.

Long night

Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate told the affiliate that several victims have life-threatening injuries.

"We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims," Neudigate said. "It's going to be a long night for our homicide units to investigate."

Neudigate described it as a "chaotic crime scene," and said they are looking for witnesses, many of whom took off when the shooting started.

"Many of them fled, unfortunately. Many of the witnesses fled, but everyone that we can identify is being interviewed," he said.
