Cincinnati's Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate called the shooting a "chaotic crime scene," adding that hundreds of party-goers were inside the nightclub at the time of the incident. Many of the witnesses fled for their safety but those that remained are be interviewed by police, said Neudigate.

"Motives remain unclear but there are no indications this incident is terrorism related," said Neudigate in a tweet.
