No arrests have been made in the shooting outside of a YMCA on Saturday that left a 17-year-old girl dead.

Kelsie Crow was found shot in the driver's seat of a crashed vehicle after a ‘Sweet 16' birthday party at the Walnut Hills YMCA on Melrose Avenue.

At least 100 teens were outside the building around 11:30 p.m. when nearly 30 shots were fired, according to police.

Two other victims, 17-year-old Leontre Edwards and 15-year-old Nyasia Williams, underwent surgery at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and are listed in stable condition.

“We had no idea this event was taking place or we would have done things differently from a staffing standpoint and an intelligence standpoint to be a little bit more prepared," said Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell. 

YMCA officials said the party was a private event and closed the facility on Monday. It reopened Tuesday.

Kelsie Crow was a junior at Purcell Marian High School and a member of the school's soccer team.

“She always was full of life and laughter. She would never have gotten into anything mischievous," said McCala Kreimer, Crow's soccer teammate, at a vigil Monday in Crow's honor.

Purcell Marian High School says visitation for Kelsie Crow will be held at the school Monday, April 13th from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. It will be limited to only family members and students. Crow's funeral will follow.

An account for Crow's family has been set up at Fifth Third Bank.

City councilman Chris Smitherman tweeted Tuesday a citizen has contacted his office and donated $2,500 to Crime Stoppers for information related to Kelsey Crow's murder. To submit a tip you can call 352-3040 or you can also text "CINTIP" plus your message to CRIMES (274637).

A GoFundMe account has been established to help raise funds for Crow's funeral.

Documents obtained by FOX19 Investigates show police were called less than 20 times to the area of the YMCA from 2011 - 2014.
