Questions Surrounding Downtown Shooting And A Look At Kentucky News

We look at the news affecting Greater Cincinnati and the Tri-state

Questions continue to surround the shooting at the Fifth Third Bank Center last week, including how the shooter was able to legally purchase a gun. The City of Cincinnati gives former City Manager Harry Black an additional $370,000 to avoid a lawsuit, even though city council had previously rejected a big payout. Kentucky lawmakers once again consider legalizing medical marijuana. And voter registration statistics in Kentucky suggest a "blue wave" in the state is unlikely.
