The shooting was sparked by a fight between a group of women, police said.
Two victims were found in a white pickup truck. A short time later, officers found a third victim in a nearby parking garage.
One of the men was seriously hurt. The other two victims are expected to recover.
Police took a person of interest in custody, charged with unrelated felonies.
Before that, a man was shot while in his car in the same area of Over-the-Rhine. He drove himself to the hospital and is going to be OK, police said.
