Colerain resident concerned about victim lying

A mass shooting at a gender reveal party near Cincinnati last month was not random and is believed to be linked to three different drug rings, according to a report from WCPO-TV.

A spokesperson for the Colerain Twp. Police Department said several people at the party had connections to the drug ring and they don’t believe the public is in any danger.
