At least nine people were killed and 16 injured in a mass shooting in a historic neighborhood in Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday -- the second mass shooting in US in less than 24 hours.
The tweets from Dayton police early on Sunday did not include further details, but described the Oregon District shooting as "a large scene and investigation". Miami Valley Hospital spokeswoman Terrea Little said 16 victims have been received at the hospital, but she couldn't confirm their conditions.

Police said that they did not have representatives available to speak to the media.

Video from the scene near downtown Dayton showed a host of emergency vehicles on a street that had been cordoned off.

Kettering Health Network spokeswoman Elizabeth Long said multiple victims from a shooting had been brought to system hospitals, but didn't have details on how many.
