Triple shooting inside University Heights party

UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati police are investigating a triple shooting at a party in a apartment building overnight.

A dispute ended in gunfire in the 700 block of Riddle Road just before 2 a.m. Wednesday, said Lt. Jim Gramke, the night chief.

About 25 people were inside the small apartment at the time. Two men, Noah Pfierman, 19, and Todd Katerberg, 18, suffered head wounds; a third, Derek Smith, 20, was hit in the chest, Gramke said.

One of the victims flagged down an officer for help.

The men were taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where they are expected to recover, Gramke said.

Police are still sorting out what happened, but they they think at least two of the victims had nothing to do with the argument that led up to the gunfire.

No arrests were made.
