Five people were shot and wounded in what may have been a gun battle outside a residence in the 7700 block of Stillwell Avenue, a Cincinnati police official said.
All of the victims suffered non-life threatening injuries and are expected to recover, said Cincinnati Police Captain Paul Neudigate, the night chief.
As many as 20 people may have been standing outside a house about midnight when one, possibly two, of them pulled out handguns and started shooting, he said. Neighbors reported hearing as many as 15 to 20 gunshots.
You know the big difference between "Progress" City and "Redville"? At midnight, our residents are sleeping because they're going to work the next morning. They're not hanging out at midnight on the streets shooting up the neighborhood.
Now ask yourself these questions.
How many of these people were collecting some form of "public assistance"?
How many of these people have jobs?
How many of these people have concealed carry permits?
