Gunman kills 3 in US bank; police shoot him dead

Police Respond to Active Shooter Situation in Downtown Cincinnati

Two other victims are being treated at University of Cincinnati hospital.

Reports indicate that during the shooting, there was an exchange of gunfire between law enforcement and the suspect in the lobby and the loading dock of the bank. Chief Isaac said the time elapsed from the first shot at 9:06 a.m. until Perez was killed was 4 minutes and 28 seconds. Two of them died, one is in critical condition, and one was in serious condition, the spokeswoman said.

"This is abnormal. No other industrialized country has this level of active multiple shootings on a regular basis", Mayor John Cranley said about the shooting.

Streets around the building at the city's Fountain Square were closed Thursday morning, as were sidewalks.

Leonard Cain was entering the bank when someone alerted him to the shooting.

"I was walking past the Chipotle and I had my headphones in when some woman stopped me and said 'You don't want to go to the square, we just heard gun shots, ' " he says.

The shooting began shortly after 9 a.m.

Police said three people died and four were injured as a result of the incident.

The site of Thursday's shooting sits alongside Fountain Square, often a site of concerts, dancing, food trucks and other events around lunchtime or in the evenings.

"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. Police said people inside the 30-story Fifth Third Center skyscraper were being held in place but would be able to leave the building soon.

Police cordoned off a portion of the city's downtown.

Three people were killed and two were injured, including Austin.

One witness, James Walker told CNN affiliate WLWT, said he heard about eight gunshots and got on his knees.

The man, who declined to give his name, at first thought it was a joke, but then saw the gunman firing into the bank.

Pictures from the scene show a large police response and victims being treated by paramedics.

Cincinnati police chief Eliot Isaac called the rampage "very horrific", though police said the circumstances surrounding the violence and a potential motive are thus far elusive. She said she did not know their condition.

"All he had to do was look over the counter at us and we would have been shot", Ginyard told reporters, adding she saw the shooter reload his pistol.

The mayor said the incident "is not normal, and it shouldn't be viewed as normal", adding the the United States is the only industrialized nation with frequent active shooter incidents.
