CINCINNATI, Ohio (FOX19) - An argument between two men at a birthday party ended in gunfire with one of them shot at The Banks in downtown Cincinnati early Monday, Cincinnati police said.

Officers responded to West Freedom Way at Rosa Parks Street just before 3 a.m.

They found the victim shot in the leg and 13 shell casings outside of Taste of Belgium restaurant, said Captain Doug Wiesman.

The victim was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, he said.

The suspect ran off and remains at large.

Wiesman said they hope surveillance cameras from nearby businesses captured the crime and clear images of the suspect.

No immediate arrests were made, and suspect information was not available.

The shooting is an isolated incident and the first one this summer at The Banks along the Ohio River, where several restaurants and the Skystar Wheel are located, Wiesman said.

However, it was one of three in just a few hours in the city overnight, including one that killed a 32-year-old man in Walnut Hills. That homicide was the second one in Cincinnati on Sunday.
