CHEVIOT, Ohio — At least one person is dead, another hurt, in a Saturday morning shooting outside a Westwood bar, Cheviot police said.

According to police, officers from Cheviot and Cincinnati responded to a shooting around 1:30 a.m. outside Babe's Cafe at the intersection of Applegate Avenue and Glenmore Avenue on the border of Westwood and Cheviot.

Cheviot police said the injured man fled from the scene in a vehicle and was found several blocks away in the 3700 block of Applegate Ave.

Before the shooting, Cheviot police said a large fight broke out outside of the bar.

We previously reported Babe's Cafe, along with two other Cincinnati businesses, could lose its liquor license following run-ins with police.

Investigators have not released the identity of those involved, but according to family members, 23-year-old London Harris is the man who was shot and killed. Loved ones gathered for a vigil Sunday where they remembered Harris as a father, son and grandson.

Cheviot police are asking anyone with any information about the shooting to call the Cheviot Police Department at 1-513-825-2280.
