2 injured by stray bullet outside nightclub

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Two women were injured early Friday morning by a stray bullet outside a nightclub.

The incident occurred at Club Celebrities in the 7600 block of Reading Road.

Police say Arthur Smith, 23, of Cincinnati, was involved in a verbal dispute with another subject, James Turner, 25, also of Cincinnati in the parking lot as patrons were leaving the club.

Smith produced a 9mm handgun and attempted to fire a shot at Turner, who grabbed for the weapon.

As the two struggled for possession of the pistol, a shot was fire and bullet fragments struck two females that were standing nearby.

Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies who were in the parking lot heard the shot and placed Smith into custody.

The females, Ira Franks, 21, and Maryah English, 19, both of Cincinnati, were taken to Children's Hospital, where they were treated and released.

Smith is charged with felonious assault, carrying concealed weapons and having weapons under disability.
