4 Dead Including Suspect In Cincinnati Shooting

Four people are dead including the suspect in a shooting at Cincinnati’s Fifth Third Tower downtown.


Cincinnati Police say two additional victims were sent to area hospitals, but they do not have information on their conditions.

Police Chief Eliot Isaac said the shooter opened fire about 9:10 a.m. Thursday morning at the loading dock of the Fifth Third Bank building.

Isaac said the gunman then entered the bank’s lobby where he exchanged gunfire with three or four officers that responded to the scene.

It’s unclear if the gunman shot himself or was shot by officers. Isaac credits quick action by his officers for preventing more people from being shot. No officers were injured.

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said the gunman was “actively shooting innocent victims” and that it was a “horrific” scene.

The motive for the shooting is not clear.
The area around Fountain Square is closed to foot traffic, as police investigate. But police say there is no longer a threat in the area.

Fountain Square is a heavily trafficked landmark in the middle of the city. It is home to retail stores, business offices, hotels and eateries. The Fifth Third Center is a 30-story skyscraper that sits on the square.
