4 dead in Cincinnati bank shooting

The shooter opened fire early in the morning at the loading dock of the Fifth Third Bank building

The 29-year-old Perez was armed with a 9mm semi-automatic pistol that was legally purchased, Isaac said.

The gunman wasn't identified immediately.

Fifth Third, which operates 1,200 banking centers across several states, in a statement offered its "thoughts and prayers" for everyone "caught up in this bad event".

The situation appeared to be under control shortly before 7 a.m.

At least some of the officers who engaged Perez were wearing body cameras during the firefight.

Police later Thursday descended on the suspect's apartment in North Bend, located some 15 miles west of Cincinnati.

"This is not normal, and it shouldn't be viewed as normal. So, he was actively shooting innocent victims and our officers were able to kill him and stop the threat quickly". "I think there's something deeply sick at work here".

In June, a gunman killed five and injured two at The Capital Gazette newspaper offices in Annapolis, Maryland.

Police found victims in and around 511 Walnut St., including one who was severely wounded and ended up at an ice cream shop steps from the building.

The 64-year-old was overseeing work on the building's third floor, the company said.

Newcomer "will be greatly missed".




"Words can not describe what I'm sure we are all feeling", said Larry Newcomer. A phalanx of police officers and ambulances rushed to the scene at the height of morning rush.

Witnesses told local media they heard as many as 20 gunshots. I kind of got down on the ground and then all the cops started coming.

There was a senseless act of gun violence on the streets of Cincinnati this morning.

To recap, just after 9, emergency responders went to 5/3rd Bank at 5th and Main for report of active shooter with multiple victims.

Another onlooker, Leonard Cain, told a newspaper he had been about to enter the bank when someone warned him about the shooting.

"It is all too clear that we have to do more in OH to address the gun violence affecting communities across the state", said a statement from the OH chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense.

"The police saved lives, and we owe them all a huge debt of gratitude", Cranley said.

"Then we knew what was going on", Hanson said. "We're of course rattled". Multiple shot, and tragically there are fatalities.

Mourners hold hands during a vigil Friday, Sept. 7, 2018 in Cincinnati's Fountain Square near the site of Thursday's fatal shooting.

Police earlier characterized it as an "active shooter/officer involved shooting incident" in a tweet, but did not elaborate.

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have responded to the scene and are assisting Cincinnati police in their investigation, the bureaus said.
