OH police have identified two suspects in a shooting at a Cincinnati night club over the weekend in which one person was killed and 16 injured, authorities said on Thursday.

Two men were arrested yesterday for last weekend's deadly nightclub shooting in Cincinnati that left one man dead and 16 others injured, and it turns out that all the shooters didn't flee the scene as many first assumed.

Authorities say additional charges are expected, and that at least one other suspect may still be at large.

Recordings of people calling 911 after a nightclub shooting in Cincinnati in which one person was killed and 16 injured capture the chaos of the incident. Authorities said Spikes died of a gunshot to the chest. A message was left Friday for Beckley's attorney.

The hospital reported two people were in critical condition as of Wednesday night, but no update was available Thursday on the other critically injured person.

Beckley was apprehended Thursday, while Davis remained hospitalized with gunshot wounds from early Sunday, Isaac said. He said Beckley denied the shooting allegation and pleaded not guilty. The suspect's father says his son is innocent.

Three victims are in a serious condition after a gun attack on Sunday morning at Cameo nightclub in Cincinatti, USA.

Their attorney, Carl Lewis, says he's waiting for all the facts.

Around 200 people were inside the club, near the Ohio River, when a dispute escalated and more than 20 shots were fired.

"We still have a long way to go", Mayor John Cranley said.

The Cameo Club is closing for good Friday. City officials say the club was the scene of other violence in recent years, including a shooting inside on New Year's Day 2015 and another shooting in the parking lot.
