There is no suspect information in any of the shootings and police said they believe all of the shootings are unrelated.”These all seem to be separate independent incidents but horrific and tragic that we have this much violence and potential for that much loss of life in our city,” Assistant Chief Paul Neudigate said. Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley released a statement Sunday, calling for an end to gun violence and asking people not to go to gatherings where guns are present.”Last night Cincinnati saw senseless gun violence that ruined lives and will cause immeasurable suffering,” Cranley said. “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are facing unprecedented circumstances and challenges when it comes to fighting crime. These issues and this surge are not unique to Cincinnati. Cities nationwide are experiencing spikes in crime. During COVID-19 we have seen a huge increase in shootings as large numbers of people with guns are gathering in private homes and public places — like Grant Park — when the bars close at 10 p.m. Guns are far too prevalent at these gatherings. Please do not attend gatherings because you could end up as an innocent victim.”Cranley said the shooters responsible will be brought to justice.Gun violence is up across the city, and if trends continue, it could be one of the deadliest years ever for violent crime in the city, according to new statistics from the Cincinnati Police Department. “If you look at the charts, it shows that we are up 9% in total violent crime year-over-year in terms of this time in 2019,” Neudigate said weeks ago, prior to this weekend’s violent stretch.Increased gun violence was reported in March and April, as numbers gradually fell in May. Neudigate said the department regrouped, and implemented a Gun Task Force to address gun violence in problem areas in May. That task force was successful at reducing gun violence, he said.But gun violence again worsened as policing took a different approach come end May, he said.“Then we know what happened at the end of May going into June with the civil disturbance and the riots. You can see where we are ever since that occurred…We are struggling to address gun violence on our streets,” Neudigate said.
