CINCINNATI — A citywide curfew goes into effect at 9 p.m. Sunday, Mayor John Cranley said. The curfew will also be in effect at 9 p.m. Monday.

The extended curfew comes the morning after a Cincinnati police officer narrowly escaped a bullet. The bullet hit the officer’s ballistic helmet as Cincinnati police worked to disperse a “disorderly crowd” near the University of Cincinnati at 12:23 a.m. Sunday. The officer was not injured.
