CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A violent weekend in Cincinnati left three people dead and 11 injured.

According to statistics released by the city, the number of homicides so far this year is down compared to last year by 14 percent. 

Thirty-six homicides were reported in the city through July 19. That number now sits at 39 homicides for 2016. 

Police tell us this past weekend was one of the most violent weekends the city has seen since the beginning of summer.

From Friday night to Sunday morning, 11 people were shot and 3 were killed.

The various shootings happened in North Fairmount, Millvale, West End, Avondale, Over-The-Rhine and Clifton Heights.

The series of shootings started just before 10:30 p.m. Friday night when 2 victims were shot on Liddell Street in South Fairmount. Both suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Then, around 4:30 a.m. Saturday morning, police arrived to find four people shot at an illegal bar along Beekman Street.

Police identified one victim as 25-year-old Ricky McGowan.

He was found inside the building. He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

And police found 23-year-old Bobbie Odneal dead on the sidewalk.

A third man was shot, along with a woman. Their injuries are all believed to be non-life threatening.

Later that day, police and emergency crews were back at another scene at the intersection of West Liberty and Lockhurst.

That's where they found 18-year-old Shear Dornal dead.

Around 10 minutes later, another person was shot in Avondale on Lexington Avenue near Reading Road.

An hour later, police responded to Vine and McMicken in OTR for another shooting.

The condition of both victims is unknown at this time.

Police said they don't believe the shootings are connected.
