Gender reveal party shooting update: Police release 911 audio after mom loses baby during chaotic gunfire

Authorities released 911 calls on Sunday that depicted the utter chaos that surrounded a Saturday shooting at a gender reveal party in Colerain Township, Ohio.

The Seattle Times reports that gunmen opened fire during what was supposed to be a festive occasion with a mom-to-be and her guests as she revealed the gender of her unborn baby, a boy. The pregnant victim was shot in the leg, resulting in substantial blood loss which made her lose her unborn child. Numerous other people, including children, were injured, and one woman, identified at Autumn Garrett, 22, of Huntington, Indiana was pronounced dead.

The incident took place off of 9900 block of Capstan Drive.

The shootings occurred after the party ended, at a little after 11 p.m., while a group of around 12 people stayed behind to watch Spider-Man. Shortly after they dimmed the lights and sat down to watch the movie, two suspects ran inside the home and opened fire in the living room. Witnesses described the suspects as two males wearing dark hoodies.

The suspects are still on the loose. According to Colerain Township Police Chief Mark Denney, authorities interviewed witnesses who were “medically able” to talk, but so far, they haven’t established a motive.

“We have interviewed those who were medically able,” Denney said.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with any information is urged to call call 513-321-COPS or Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
