Gender Reveal Party Turns Deadly After Shooting At Party

So sad.

Family and friends gathered together just this past Saturday for what seemed to be a joyous occasion.

Planning to reveal the gender of a baby to the entire family, one mother-to-be waited patiently to learn the gender of her child as well.

After the party was over, onlookers claimed that about a dozen people, including small children, had gotten settled to hangout and watch a “Spider-Man” movie. That was until unexpected terror struck the home and caused harm to the family.

Officers near Cincinnati said that two gunmen, wearing hoodies, opened fire into the home, shooting and killing a woman, as well as wounding eight others, including three children.

Now, instead of celebrating a new life, the family and other party goers will be mourning the loss of their loved one, as well as praying for a speedy recovery over the others.

Autum Garrett, 22, was pronounced dead at the scene and the eight other victims, including children, 8, 6, 2, suffered non-life threatening injuries, according to officers.

Everyone injured was rushed to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, as well as the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to authorities. Colerain Township, Ohio is only about nine miles northwest of Cincinnati.

The suspects remain unknown and at large.

“We don’t know who the suspects are or why they did this,” said Mark Denney, chief of police in Colerain Township, on Sunday evening. “We’re not sure if (the suspects) were allowed in or they forced entry at this point.”

James Love, a spokesman for the Colerain Township Police Department, told HLN’s Erica Hill on Monday that investigators are following every lead they get. “This situation seems to have come out of the blue,” Love said.

“We as police and the community has been recently coming together, trying to unite ourselves, trying to create a community sense, once again trying to put up good defenses,” he said. “Lights, cameras and everything else to try to cut down on what has become a problem in this neighborhood.”

It’s sad that people can’t even come together for an occasion as joyous as the birth of a child, however, we are hopeful that the killers are found soon.
