COLUMBUS, Ohio — A shooting at an after-hours club in Ohio left nine people injured early Sunday, police said.
Two people are in critical condition and seven others are stable, according to the Columbus Division of Police. All nine injured were transported to area hospitals.
Police received calls reporting the shooting at the club, in northeast Columbus, at 3:20 a.m. Sunday.
Authorities are looking for multiple shooters in the investigation, according to CNN affiliate WCMH.
On Sunday, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) issued the following statement on the shooting:
“Connie and I join Ohioans in praying for the full recovery of everyone injured in last night’s shooting. Like many today, we will hug our family a little tighter after this devastating news and hope the families of the victims will be able to do the same very soon.
“We are grateful to the medical professionals caring for the injured as well as the police and first responders at the scene. News of gun violence in our communities is always heartbreaking – especially on a weekend meant for celebrating with family, and so soon after last month’s nightclub shooting in Cincinnati. As always, my office will offer any assistance we can as law enforcement investigate.”
