Two Arrested In Cameo Nightclub Shooting

Bill Rinehart

Cincinnati Police are charging two people in last weekend's shooting at Cameo Night Club. Seventeen people were hit by gunfire at the Kellogg Ave club early Sunday morning. One died at the scene. 

Cornell Beckley, 27, and Deondre Davis, 29, are charged with murder. Davis is one of the 17 people wounded and is listed in critical condition.

Police Chief Eliot Isaac says there's been a lot of speculation over who was the intended target.

"This did begin with an altercation inside the night club," says Isaac. "A group of individuals deteriorated into a fight, it escalated into individuals being able to sneak guns inside the bar and shots being fired."

Isaac says more arrests could be coming.
