A "horrific" shooting in an OH town has killed one woman and injured eight people, including three children, police say.

WCPO reported that it happened at a home just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday as partygoers were watching a movie.

"Two guys just came in and shot people in the house", a woman outside the home at the time told a dispatcher during a frantic 911 call, according to WCPO.

Although there is no one in custody, police said 911 calls and radio logs indicate that there may have been two shooters, WCPO reports. The three children were taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Of the eight surviving victims, Love said only one has serious injuries.

A pregnant woman at the party lost her baby after being shot in the leg. Of the other five victims, one is in critical condition.

Witnesses told police they saw the two gunmen run out before driving away in a vehicle.

All of the victims were family and friends gathered for the party, police told WLWT.

The suburban police department asked Cincinnati Police crime scene investigators help them process the scene of the shooting.

Police did not say whether the two men were suspects, and were still investigating a motive for the bloodshed.

Colerain police spokesman James Love said the first officer through the door of the small house encountered a woman dead on the floor.
