• At least nine people were injured after a person opened fire outside a bar in Cincinnati on Sunday.
  • Police said the victims are not in critical condition.
  • The suspect — who police say was wearing a white shirt and dark pants —  is at large. 

At least nine people were wounded after a person opened fire on a crowd outside a Cincinnati, Ohio, bar early Sunday morning, according to local news and police. 

The mass shooting occurred downtown at about 1:30 a.m. when the suspect discharged their weapon, NBC News reported.

Cincinnati Police Department Lt. Colonel Mike John said that a responding officer fired a shot at the suspect, who was still shooting at the scene, according to the report. 

"We do not know if that officer struck the individual he was firing the gun on," John said during a press conference, noting that the suspect left the scene.

According to John, the victims had "lower extremity injuries" and were not in critical condition. They were transported to the local hospital for medical treatment. 

Security footage obtained by WLWT shows people running the moment shots rang out. Police said the suspect is currently not in custody. However, John gave a vague description of the individual, saying that they were wearing "a white shirt and dark pants."

"Today's events are completely and totally unacceptable," Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval said in a statement, according to the report. "The use of guns to solve disputes cannot become a normal part of our culture. I want to express the City's gratitude to the officers on the scene. Their quick response likely saved many more from injury and prevented the loss of life."
