Drive-by shooting injures three people inside a College Hill nightclub

CINCINNATI (FOX19) –   Cincinnati Police are investigating the drive-by shooting of three people inside a College Hill night club; at least one person is said to have life threatening injuries.

It happened in the 5900 block of Hamilton Avenue.

Officers have not given out the names of the victims.  

"The only way you can stop senseless violence is through the power of prayer" says Theodore A. Freeman, Pastor of the Jesus Christ Church in the Apostolic Faith.

The club is located right down the road from the Jesus Christ Church in the Apostolic Faith, an organization that focused its Sunday service on prayer for the shooting victims.

"I told them about it, when I pulled up this morning about the shooting because the funny thing is, I was in the area last night and it could have happened anytime "says Theodore A. Freeman, Pastor of the Jesus Christ Church in the Apostolic Faith.

We're told two of the shooting victims are expected to survive; one victim was taken into surgery with life-threatening injuries early Sunday morning.

A fourth person was also stabbed outside the nightclub. 

"We can't keep them away from what's going on and seeing it but we can give them a safe place a safe haven where they can come" says Jackie Jackson of the Cincinnati Black Theatre Company.

Members of the Cincinnati Black Theatre Company also across the street from where shell casings were found agree this type of brutality needs to stop and say that's why they're committed to youth programming.

"Violence, you're not going to get away from it; unfortunately we would love to live in a community, a city where violence doesn't exist  so the importance is to minimize the contact our young people have with the violence" says Jackie Jackson of the Cincinnati Black Theatre Company.

Late Sunday afternoon police told us the investigation continues, they believe shots were fired after an argument in a nearby parking lot...that came in two rounds about five minutes apart as someone was leaving the area.

FOX 19 tried to talk to the bar's new owners; they declined our request for an interview.
