CINCINNATI (WDTN) – Police in Cincinnati say they have two people in custody in connection with the Cameo nightclub shooting.
The Chief of Police said Thursday both men will be charged with murder. More charges may be added when the case is presented to a grand jury. Isaac also said the investigation is ongoing and more arrests may come.
The two men in custody are 27-year-old Cornell Beckley and 29-year-old Deondre Davis. Isaac said Davis is still in the hospital being treated for gunshot wounds. He is listed in critical condition.
Beckley was arrested Thursday afternoon without incident, according to police.
Chief Eliot Isaac said the incident at the Cameo nightclub began as a disagreement and escalated to a fight which led to the shooting.
If you missed the news conference when it happened you can watch it here:
Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said, “This is a tragedy of epic proportions. The worst mass-shooting in the history of the city.” Cranley went on to say officials have to find a way to get guns off the street and “teach people not to resolve their disputes with guns.”
Isaac said police believe at least three different guns made it inside the club and there may have been more.
The investigation continues.
O’Bryan Spikes, 27, was killed and 16 others were also shot at the nightclub early Sunday. Witnesses said at least 20 shots rang out.
2 NEWS has confirmed two of the injured, Jarrod Givens and Lyrik Hardaway, are from Trotwood.
The Cameo Nightclub is expected to close for good by the end of the week. No arrests have been made in the case.
