On Wednesday, police reported that a bystander was shot during an exchange of gunfire between a suspect and law enforcement officials at a Kroger grocery store located just outside of Cincinnati.

The Colerain Police Department in Colerain Township, Ohio, responded to a report of “shots fired” at the Kroger on Springdale Road shortly before 4 p.m. ET.

According to Colerain Township Police Chief Ed Cordie, officers approached the store when they encountered a suspect outside. The suspect proceeded to point a weapon at the officers, resulting in gunfire. Afterward, the suspect retreated into the store.

Law enforcement confirmed that there was an exchange of gunfire between the suspect and the police, resulting in an injury to one bystander. The chief provided this information after initial reports from the police were inconsistent and conflicting.

The suspect was struck and subsequently taken into custody during the incident, according to the authorities.

According to the statement, both the bystander and suspect are expected to survive their injuries.

Following the incident, the Kroger location was shut down.

Colerain Police Department PIO Jim Love emphasized the importance of ensuring proper processing before granting access to people. He also highlighted the significance of the store’s surveillance cameras for the ongoing investigation.

According to Love, the Kroger location on Springfield Road is one of the busiest in the township. He emphasized the significance of the incident, stating, “It is a big deal to have shots fired in the middle of the day here.”
