Four people shot, including 10-year-old boy, across multiple scenes in violent Cincinnati neighborhood
At least four people have been injured in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati after a shooting across multiple scenes Wednesday afternoon around 4:30 pm, according to police.
One of the shooting victims was 18 years old while the remaining three were all juveniles, with one just 10 years old, authorities said. The other two wounded minors are 14 and 15.
The incident took place in the city’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, which has seen the most shootings of anywhere in the city so far in 2023 and has seen shootings rise year-upon-year, according to WCPO.
All of those shot have been taken to local hospitals but their injuries are reportedly non-life threatening.
Police told that the media that they believe that the victims were shot by multiple gunmen traveling in a black four-door Hyundai with tinted windows.
Authorities did not say if they believe that the victims were targeted.

‘We as a city, I don’t care who you are, you should not tolerate this kind of behavior in this city, in broad daylight. They are not going to get away with this,’ Cincinnati Police Chief Teresa Theetge said.
‘This will not be tolerated. Not in Cincinnati,’ she added.
A witness told WLWT that he heard the banging, which sounded like fireworks, and then he ‘just saw people running.’
