• Woman shot at gender reveal party not actually pregnant, police say


    A woman did not lose her unborn child during a shooting at a gender reveal party, because she wasn't pregnant, said police. 

    Cheyanne Willis threw a gender reveal party, but was not pregnant, Ohio police told WCPO-TV. 

    On July 8, Willis and others gathered at an Ohio home where she was going to announce the gender of her baby. Police said they believe two gunmen entered through the front door and fired 14 rounds while attendants were watching a movie, reports WCPO-TV. 

    One person was killed, and another eight injured, including three children. A dog was also injured. 

    "From the very beginning of this investigation, we have met significant resistance that is uncommon from victims of crime wanting a resolution," a news release from Police Chief Mark Denney said.

    Willis told WCPO-TV that she lost her pregnancy after she was shot in the leg. 

    Denney said he wasn't trying to embarrass anyone by revealing the fake pregnancy, but wanted to illustrate the difficulties the police department has been facing. 

    "The Colerain Police Department will not comment further on any other misleading information, other than to say we wish our time had been spent on true leads that would help us remove these dangerous criminals from the streets."

    So far no one has been arrested.
