CINCINNATI - An early morning shooting at a west side bar leaves four people injured.

Officers responded to the Paradise Lounge on W. 8th just before 2 a.m. for a report of a person shot. Inside the bar, officers tell 9 On Your Side they found a woman and two men suffering from gun shot wounds.

A short time later officers received a report of a fourth person shot a nearby home on Warsaw Avenue. Officers say that male victim was also shot at the bar.

The female victim's condition is non life threatening according to officers. The conditions of the three male victims are unknown at this time.

No arrests have been made at this time.

Scott Schaeffer lives right across the street and woke up to the sounds of gunshots. He says it's not the first time.

"It's the third incident since the bar opened there has been active gunfire and police involvement," said Schaeffer. "I would like to see the city or even the police department take an active role in making sure this doesn't occur as would a vast majority of my neighbors."
