Authorities were searching for the assailant or assailants, who fled after shots rang out at a home around 11:30 p.m.

What the freep?
At 11:30 p.m.
Like, what the freepin' freep?
Beats me. Probably they wait until the stroke of midnight and pull their babys' diapers down.
Good gravy, that could be exactly it.
Apparently when ppl get their ultrasound and learn the gender of their baby they hold a party to tell all their friends the news.
Headline made me think this was a “coming out” party for a tranny revealing he/she/its new “identity”.
You mean you didn’t have a big surprise party during each of your pregnancies revealing whether you were having a boy or girl? These are elaborate events for some and often very creative.
I didn’t either.
I can't imagine Newsman Les Nessman reporting a Story like this on the Air.
According to my Google results, this event occurs mid-pregnancy, following an ultrasound, at 20 weeks or so, with clear images. The party resembles a baby shower in that it features silly games.
Golly, what I missed ...
Not sure I’d be a barrel of fun at one of those parties.
Ahh, no thanks.
Foisting this off on infants, is by my way of thinking child abuse. What they are engaged in could be very harmful to their child’s self-identity later on, and ultimately their well being both physical and mental.
You don’t read about too many women named “Autumn” who lived to be 95 or 96.
The over and under for that name must be 26.
I swear I thought this was going to be about what gender the parents had “chosen” for their baby...
When I saw the headline, I thought this was about someone ‘coming out’ with a new gender. So most of the posters think this was about the pregnant woman’s now dead baby?
Buried the lede. WHO SHOT UP THE PLACE? WHY?
...Two guys just came in and shot people in the house, she said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer...
Police did not say whether the two men were suspects, and were still investigating a motive for the bloodshed...
No, never. It’s up with “push present” among the childbearing-related customs I completely missed.
We knew the sex of some of our children before they were born. We used the information to say, “Look, it’s a girl after two boys: we could use some pink clothes!” or, with the last one, to reassure the sisters that it wasn’t the 5th brother in a row.
We've learned in the last five minutes that this party is held before the baby is born, so it doesn't affect him/her, unless there's a shooting.
One caller said she was outside when she saw a person in a blue hoodie and a person in the green hoodie enter the home and open fire.
Starting to make a little more sense (if a senseless killing can make sense).
None of the articles even identify if it was a boy or a girl and neither counted the dead baby among the dead (just a grown woman) and only one of the victims allegedly had “serious” injury, if you don’t count a dead fetus at a party in the FETUS’ HONOR...
