After reports of a possible triple shooting, Cincinnati Police are on the scene in the North Fairmount area conducting an investigation. The shootings are believed to happen today after 10:00 p.m. and injured three individuals.
Calls first came in to the Police about a double shooting. Officers responded to 1957 Baltimore Avenue. While no suspect was immediately located, one victim, a 18-year-old male, was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center (UCMC) suffering from a pair gunshot wounds. According to emergency personal, one of the gunshot wounds was in his abdomen.
A second victim of the shooting was also transported to UCMC, approximately 10 minutes after the first victim.
