CINCINNATI (AP) — The Latest on the nightclub shooting in Cincinnati (all times local):

9:45 a.m.

Cincinnati city officials say a conflict between at least two people and possibly groups earlier Saturday apparently escalated into the overnight nightclub shooting that left one person dead and 14 people injured.

Officials say the Cameo club has been the scene of gun violence before, including a shooting inside the club on New Year’s Day in 2015 and in the parking lost in September of last year.

Police say gunfire erupted about 2:20 a.m. Sunday sending club goers fleeing.

City Manager Harry Black calls the event “horrific.” He says the investigation continues.

A hospital spokeswoman says eight among those injured in the Cincinnati nightclub shooting are being treated at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

The Sunday morning shooting at the Cameo club left one person dead and more than a dozen injured.

Hospital spokeswoman Kelly Martin says one person is in critical condition at the Medical Center, three others are in serious condition, and four are listed as stable.

She had no details on the types of injuries or the ages of the victims.

Police haven’t released any information on possible suspects or whether they have determined the motive for the assault. They say there is no evidence the shooting is terrorism related.

Police are now saying only one shooter was responsible for the deadly Cincinnati nightclub assault.

Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate says in a tweet there was only one reported shooter but police are still investigating. Police earlier had said “at least a couple of shooters” opened fire inside the Cameo club early Sunday, killing one person and wounding more than a dozen others.

The motive for the shooting remains unclear, and Neudigate says there is no indication the attack is terrorism related.

The shooting occurred on a busy night. Capt. Kim Williams says the crowd there is often very young on Saturday nights and they have had trouble in the past, but “this is the worst by far.”

A coroner removed a body from the scene shortly after 6 a.m.
