So far, there doesn't seem to be any motivation for the crime.

"Two guys just came in and shot people in the house", a woman outside the home at the time told a dispatcher during a frantic 911 call, according to WCPO.

It happened at 11:30 Saturday night. That's near Colerain Avenue, just north of Northgate Mall.

Three children are being treated at Cincinnati Children's Medical Center. However, all have non-life threatening injuries. The three other adult victims are in fair condition at the hospital.

WCPO reported that one woman was sitting in her vehicle when the shooting happened.


According to a report by Fox News, officials said two men wearing all black opened fire at the gender reveal party. The shooter or shooters ran away and haven't been caught. Then, they ran off into the night. Police do not have a clear motive for the shooting. The shooter fled the scene and has not been caught. The two men that witnesses saw leaving the house are still at large. He looked outside and the next thing he knew, there was gunfire.

One victim told WKRC Local 12 that she was pregnant and was shot in the leg. It is not known if that individual was the who the party was for or if she was a guest.

The identities of the victims has not been released.

Police were able to obtain an order from a judge to search and control the home, Love said. He says the children are ages 8, 6 and 2.

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