9 shot, 1 killed in Colerain Twp

Authorities said a woman was killed and eight others were injured while gathering for a gender reveal party Saturday in Colerain Township, Ohio.

Officers responded to the 9900 block of Capstan Drive at approximately 11:20 p.m. for a 911 reported multiple gunshots. "Two guys just came in and shot people in the house", one woman who was outside in her auto told the 911 dispatcher. Chief Mark Denney says the two men haven't been identified or arrested.

Denney says none of the eight who were wounded appeared to have life-threatening injuries.

"Two guys just came in and shot people in the house", she reportedly told the dispatcher. With the help of Colerain paramedics and teams from neighboring jurisdictions, all the surviving victims were taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center or Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

Beijing's claims in the region have been contested by Brunei, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam. The operation comes two months after North Korea launched a ballistic missile toward Japan.

Another witness told police that the two male shooters were wearing hooded sweatshirts. "I looked outside, next thing I know they just ran in and just started shooting". The shooter fled the scene and has not been caught. Officials have not released the names of the victims. When the shooting began, everyone was sitting down watching a movie.

They've not been identified by Colerain Township police; two cars were towed from the scene, but FOX19 says police are still establishing a motive and pursuing leads.

"You're hoping that there won't be situations like this", Love said.
