Police investigate double-shooting on East McMicken Avenue in Over-the-Rhine

CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati police are investigating a double-shooting that took place near a park in Over-the-Rhine Friday evening.

The shooting occurred on Back Street near Grant Playground at about 8:30 p.m., according to a dispatcher from District 1 of the Cincinnati Police Department. The playground was roped off with police tape but it's unclear if the shooting took place inside the park.

The victims, whose names were not released, were transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Specific details regarding the severity of their injuries were not immediately available but dispatch described one of the victims as being "grazed" by a bullet.

Cincinnati police investigators said the victims were not cooperating so they don't have suspect information.
