Police release the name of 3 victims killed by Cincinnati 'lone shooter'

A gunman opened fire Thursday morning in a building in downtown Cincinnati, U.S. state of OH, in an attack that left him and three other people dead, authorities said Thursday.

The emergency call about shots fired at 38 Fountain Square was received at 9:10 a.m. Isaac said an individual had entered the loading dock area and fired, then entered the lobby where gunfire was exchanged between the shooter and officers. Then, according to Isaac, the gunman entered the bank's lobby.

We are learning more about gunman Omar Enrique Santa-Perez, who was fatally shot by officers responding to the shooting.

If it had taken longer to kill him, Perez could have killed many more people, Mayor John Cranley said. The gunman was later shot dead by the police.

Isaac also praised officers, who arrived at the site of the shooting within seconds, for their "quick response". At least two others have been injured.

The two wounded people were in critical and fair condition, University of Cincinnati Medical Center said.

Kevin Na went low at 8-under for the day, matching Woods' and McIlroy's Thursday scores after carding an even-par 70 on Day 1. Still, but for a few narrow misses with a putter that had been so steady Thursday, Woods would've drawn close to Schauffele.

One was a longtime construction worker who was working in the building.

Pruthviraj Kandepi 25, who hailed from Andhra Pradesh, and two others, Luis Felipe Calderon, 48, and Richard Newcomer, 64, were shot dead on Thursday by the gunman identified as Omar Perez, 29. We prepare for situations like these and hope they never happen.

"If he had gotten on the elevator, gone up to a floor, if he had been there earlier or a little bit longer, many more people would have been killed", Cranley said.

No motive for the carnage had immediately been determined.

"There may be a possibility that there's some mental health issues involved here, but again, the investigation is only hours old", he said. He said the firearm was apparently legally purchased.

Isaac says the shooter used a 9 mm handgun with some 200 rounds of ammunition. "And I'm thinking about how I can make a difference in the future", Austin said in the statement.

One witness, Leonard Cain, told the Cincinnati Enquirer that he was going inside a bank when someone yelled that he shouldn't because of the shooting.

Another employee, Michele Parks said she was about to go into the bank when Cook stopped her.

Newcomer was a superintendent at Gilbane Building Company and working Thursday at the Fifth Third Center, Gilbane spokesman Wes Cotter said. Overall, Cain said he heard about 15 shots.

Thursday evening the Cincinnati Reds honored the five shooting victims with a moment of silence while an image with "Cincinnati Strong" was displayed on the scoreboard.
