4 people killed in Cincinnati shooting, including gunman

Perez had about 250 rounds in the satchel, Isaac said.

The victims have been identified as Pruthvi Raj Kandepi, Richard Newcomer and Luis Felipe Calderón, according to the Hamilton County Coroner.

Authorities on Friday said they have not figured out why 29-year-old Omar Enrique Santa Perez opened fire inside the lobby of a building where he never worked or had any known connection. India's Consul General in New York Sandeep Chakravorty told the news agency that the Consulate is communicating with the police, Kandepi's family, and members of the community about the incident.

Yudy Martinez Perez broke down crying in the kitchen floor of her Forest Park home Thursday afternoon when she learned that her nephew was the shooter who took three lives at the Fifth Third Center.

The officers were wearing body cameras.

A 25-year-old bank consultant from Tenali in Guntur district was shot dead in a shoot out in the headquarters of the Fifth Third Bank near Foundation Square in Downtown Cincinnati in United State, reports reaching here said.

"This is not normal, and it shouldn't be viewed as normal".

"This is clearly an act of grotesque violence to innocent people and it should frighten all of us", said Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley. "I think there's something deeply sick at work here".

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.

The area around the skyscraper was shut down until about 9.15am (9pm Singapore time), and 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. She works for Fifth Third Bank.

Newcomer "will be greatly missed. After that, I started running", Richardson told the paper.

At least two ambulances were seen leaving the scene.

"To help us all more, he got a good job offer and it was a really tough decision to make because he was leaving everything behind", she said. He did not hear the shots, he said, but he saw emergency responders wheeling out victims on stretchers.

Workers quickly fled the building and hid in bathrooms and closets when they heard a hail of gunfire and smelled gun power. "We're a bit rattled". Multiple shot, and tragically there are fatalities.

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