Cincinnati Police Department Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said there is no indication the shooting was linked with terrorism.
Several of the victims are in surgery with life-threatening injuries.
Police were called to the Cameo Night Club in the 4600 block of Kellogg Avenue around 1:30 a.m. on a report of a shooting. He said there was a fight and people were yelling for security to intervene before the gunfire began. "People [were] just trying to get out of harm's way".
Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said one of the wounded was in "extremely critical condition", while a hospital spokeswoman said two victims were listed in critical condition. On New Year's Day in 2015, one person was shoot in the foot at the club. They said there is only one reported shooter, although they initially said they were looking for two people. Sgt. Dan Hils, president of Cincinnati's police union, said what they and other officers encountered when they rushed inside may have left them disturbed.
Hundreds of people were in the club at the time of the shooting, Neudigate reportedly said.
Cranley said police will investigate the club and its safety protocols.
It was unclear how many shooters were involved.
Anyone with additional information on the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040 or police at 513-765-1212.
Days after the Kansas Bar shooting incident, another Indian-origin businessman, Harnish Patel, was shot dead outside his home in SC, media reports said.
He said police were interviewing multiple witnesses to the shooting.
"I don't want to make speculations on what happened, but just keep an eye on your young people", Williams told reporters at a news conference, according to ABC News.
It was not immediately clear where the shooter was.
According to its Facebook page, Cameo admits "grown and sexy" partygoers aged 21 and over on Saturday nights.
The parking lots near the nightclub were completely full, Franz said, which caused problems for first responders attempting to reach the shooting victims. No one had been arrested last night and the number of gunmen was uncertain.
