Cincinnati bank shooting leaves four dead, including gunman

A 25-year-old Indian man was among three people killed in the U.S. city of Cincinnati where a gunman opened fire in a bank building.

"Oh, no, no, no, no", the woman said as she slumped against the wall and spoke to Santa Perez's sister, the paper reported. Thursday afternoon, the hospital shared an update that one patient had been upgraded to fair condition, while another was still in critical condition.

Bank manager Greg Harshfield, who on the 29th floor of the building when the shooting began, said that he heard multiple shots and saw police arrive nearly immediately.

The Cincinnati Police Department confirmed on Twitter that it was investigating an "active shooter/officer-involved shooting incident" in the lobby and loading dock of a large building near Fountain Square.

The chief said some of the victims were shot multiple times. Wes Cotter, a spokesman with Gilbane Building Co., said Newcomer was at the skyscraper to gather details for ongoing work when he was shot. He tried to do the same for another woman also about to enter the bank, but he was too late. As previously announced, two other victims received at UC Medical Center are deceased.

He says the officers risked their lives by running into the line of fire. Police also hope to get clues to the gunman's movements from surveillance video from the building and outside near the square. Cook said she and two other employees hid in the bathroom for the duration of the shooting.

The two other victims of the Cincinnati bank shooting were identified as 48-year-old Luis Felipe Calderon and 64-year-old Richard Newcomer.

"I made it out to see my kids, to see another day", she said with relief. "Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of the victims, our heartful gratitude goes to the first responders and our continued support goes to this community that we love".
