CINCINNATI (WKRC) - One of the men charged in the Cameo night club shooting has died.

Deondre Davis was in critical condition after he was shot in the abdomen at the night club more than a week ago. His family had hoped he would recover after undergoing surgery last Friday. He was taken off life support early Tuesday morning.

According to court documents, Davis and Beckley were in "a gun battle" at the club following a fight. Davis was hit along with 15 others and his friend, Obryan Spikes, died. Cornell Beckley is also charged with murder in Spikes's death.

Davis's family and attorney, Carl Lewis, maintain he is innocent. They said he was at Cameo celebrating the birthdays of a cousin and a friend when "random shots" were fired.

Neither Cincinnati Police nor the Hamilton Co. Prosecutor's Office would comment Tuesday on what evidence linked Davis to the crime. There was also no comment on who would be charged in Davis's death.

Police said last week more arrests were expected from the shooting. Many of the shooting victims were released from the hospital. It's believed one person remains in critical condition.

Cornell Beckley will likely face more charges after the case against him is presented to the Grand Jury. He is being held on a $1.7 million bond.
