Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said the shooting represents a growing trend throughout the state.
“What happened early this morning in Springfield is a tragedy, DeWine said. “In Springfield, gun violence there continues but it is not unique to Springfield. We see this in cities across our state.”
Investigators said people were gathering for a wake where the shooting took place for someone who died several years ago. City leaders have scheduled a news conference at 1:30 p.m. today. The news conference will provide updates on the shooting.
