HAMILTON, Ohio  — Police in southwest Ohio are investigating a shooting at a bar that left one man dead and several others wounded.

Hamilton Police Chief Craig Bucheit tells the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News that investigators are still trying to determine the number of victims shot at the Doubles Bar at about 2 a.m. Sunday. Some drove themselves to the hospital.

Elsewhere in Ohio, authorities were seeking information about a number of weekend shootings.

Cleveland police say a 27-year-old man died after he was shot multiple times early Sunday and a 15-year-old boy was shot in the back Saturday. The victims were among at least five people shot in separate incidents Saturday and overnight into Sunday.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that since Friday night, at least 11 people have been shot in the city and police confirm three victims have died.

Police Chief Craig Bucheit said: “What happened tonight tonight is unacceptable and we’re going to work with management and ownership to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” according to WHIO.

“It reminded me of things in the news, about people shooting and active shooters,” Tolu Adeseha, a witness, said. “This [was] a reality for me, what do you do in an active situation.”
