Active Shooter Reported in Downtown Cincinnati

Shooting incident reported in Cincinnati

UC Health in Cincinnati confirmed via Twitter that it received four of the victims - three males and one female.

A gunman carrying enough ammunition to cause "a bloodbath beyond imagination" killed three people and wounded two others Thursday morning at a high-rise office building in the heart of Cincinnati before dying in a hail of police gunfire.

Original story: Multiple people were shot in Cincinnati Thursday in what police called an "active shooter" situation in the lobby of a downtown building in the central business district.

The gunman has been identified by authorities as Omar Santa Perez. For example, the newspaper reports that one victim was found in a local ice cream shop and another was discovered at 5th and Walnut.

A police officer at the scene told The Associated Press there are at least two, possibly more, people who have been shot.

"Earlier today, an active shooter entered our headquarters building in downtown Cincinnati".

Mayor John Cranley said the shooting could have been "much worse" had it not been for the quick response by cops in the area. "She walked in the door and he shot her", Cain told the Cincinnati Enquirer. Passersby tried to similarly warn a woman not to enter the building, but she couldn't hear them over her headphones.

Witnesses said more than a dozen shots were fired, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Yudy Martinez Perez broke down in sobs when she learned her nephew was the shooter, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

Investigators say the shooting in the lobby and loading dock area of the bank located at 511 Walnut Street.

Witnesses tell me they heard 10-12 shots.

"All he had to do was look over at the counter at us and we would have been shot", she added.

Mayor John Cranley praised police and other emergency personnel, saying, "the heroism of these officers was truly remarkable". Streets and sidewalks around Fountain Square were closed.

"Oh, no, no, no, no", the woman said as she slumped against the wall and spoke to Santa Perez's sister, the paper reported. We knew immediately something was wrong.

Fifth Third Bank is one of Cincinnati's dominant financial institutions with 121 local branches. Two died, one is in critical condition and one remains in serious condition, she said. When the elevator doors opened, Hanson said her co-worker nearly stepped on a man's body. The company in a statement said it's working with law enforcement and offers thoughts and prayers for "everyone caught up in this awful event".

"Random mass shootings, which plague our Nation, are not normal and we as a Country can't allow them to be normalized".
