The gunmen were dressed in black and broke into the home while guests watched a movie.

Neighbors said that the shooter fled the scene.

“As of right now, I do not know what instigated this,” Jim Love, the public information officer for Colerain Township Police said. “I do not know how this got started.”

Five victims were transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

One victim is in critical condition, three are in fair condition and one is in stable condition, according to the hospital.

The three children were taken to Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

“Hopefully there we can get some information and descriptions, all the information we need to be able to proceed and continue this investigation, hopefully get the people who did the shooting,” Love said.
