A party on Flora Street last weekend quickly turned to chaos when police said four people were shot. Just prior to this shooting, the Cincinnati Police Department (CPD) said officers were in the area to address a large crowd. Multiple people were detained, and arrests were made “for other involvement,” CPD said.
University of Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said police understand college parties are going to happen.
“You go to every university in the country, these things are not uncommon,” University of Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said. “What is uncommon is when someone is hurt, or there’s someone introducing firearms.”
