CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Two people were shot in Clifton late Monday, including one who is critically hurt, according to Cincinnati police.

Officers responded to Central Parkway near Clifton Colony Drive about 10 p.m., said Lt. Tim Lanter.

The second shooting victim was taken by private vehicle to a hospital in western Cincinnati.

That person’s condition is critical, Lt. Lanter said.
