One person has been killed and 14 others injured in a mass shooting at a nightclub called the Cameo Club on Kellogg Avenue in Cincinnati, Ohio, according to media reports.

Police in Cincinnati say there were "at least a couple of shooters" who opened fire inside of a nightclub.

Captain Kim Williams says authorities are not sure what prompted the shooting, reports AP. She says the crowd there on Saturday nights is often very young, and they have had trouble in the past, but "this is the worst by far."

The police added that since the motive is unclear there’s no reason to suspect terrorism at this point.

She says the scene was chaotic when the gunfire erupted. Police are interviewing witnesses, and asking anyone with information to come forward. Authorities do not have any suspects at the moment.

WLWT reports that at least one of the wounded is in critical condition at a hospital.

We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims. It’s going to be a long night for our homicide units to investigate this incident, but right now things are stable.
Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate told NBC News

At least 15 people were shot at around 1 am (US time). Out of the hundreds who were present at the nightclub at the time of shooting, many of them have life-threatening injuries, said Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate. The victims have been rushed to four hospitals nearby.

The police have confirmed that the investigation is ongoing.
