CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio prosecutor discussed the Cincinnati nightclub shooting case Thursday morning.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters scheduled a Thursday news conference. Cincinnati police have said they expected grand jury action to result in more charges after initially charging two men with murder.

One of the two suspects, 29-year-old Deondre Davis, died Tuesday after being shot in the March 26 gunfight. Twenty-seven-year-old O’Bryan Spikes died March 26. Fifteen other people were injured.

Police say a dispute escalated into violence while an estimated 200 people were in the Cameo club east of downtown Cincinnati. The club has since closed.
