Ohio: Shooting in bar with multiple victims reported
A shooting has reportedly taken place at a bar in Hamilton, Ohio, killing at least one person. Multiple people have been injured, according to local media. Police and medics are at the scene.
Police were dispatched to Doubles bar and nightclub at around 2am local time on Sunday, Dayton Daily News reported.
Witness Tolu Adeseha said he was inside the bar when he heard at least 15 shots go on for what “felt like hours.”
“It reminded me of things in the news, about people shooting and active shooters,” he said. “This [was] a reality for me, what do you do in an active situation.”
Adeseha said he saw multiple people with guns, but did not see anyone fire the weapons.
“You [had] people trying to play dead and things like that,” he said. “This is an active shooter and I was trying to tell a girl [next to me], you can’t cry, I know it’s traumatic for you, but you got to stay silent or play dead.”
Initial reports indicated that at least two people had been shot, with potentially more victims.
The site has been cordoned off by authorities.
Doubles bar was also the scene of a double shooting in August 2015.
