OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) -

A 22-year-old man is expected to recover from a shooting after a basketball game inside a church Wednesday night, Cincinnati police said.

Officers responded to Philippus United Church of Christ on West McMicken Avenue about 8 p.m. , said Lt. Tm Brown, the night chief.

A dispute broke out during a basketball game, he said.

“They were playing basketball together and somebody said they were going to go get a gun. The victim said he was walking out of the church when somebody fired through the door and struck him in the right leg,” Brown said.

The victim was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

The suspect remains at large.
