4 dead, including gunman, in Cincinnati office shooting

"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.

Authorities have identified the gunman who allegedly killed three people and wounded two others at a bank in downtown Cincinnati as a 29-year-old OH resident. He then entered the lobby where he exchanged fire with police officers, Isaac told a news conference.

Police in Cincinnati have reported three people killed and a gunman dead in a shooting at a bank.

The suspect, Omar Enrique Santa Perez, had a pistol and more than 200 rounds of ammunition, police said. The hospital later said on Twitter that two of the four victims had died, another was in critical condition and the fourth was in serious condition.

Another victim was reportedly located inside the nearby Graeter's ice cream shop, next door to the Fifth Third Bank building on Fountain Square.

Al Jazeera contacted the Cincinatti Police Department but did not immediately receive a response.

Leonard Cain told The Cincinnati Enquirer he was going inside the bank when someone alerted him there was shooting. Although people tried to get her attention before she entered the building, she was wearing headphones and did not hear them.

Cincinnati Police released edited clips from security cameras in the building of the gunman with his arm extended randomly shooting at people.

The shooting happened near Cincinnati's landmark Fountain Square.

Police said there were several victims in the area of 511 Walnut St.in the city's central business district, a few blocks from Great American Ball Park along the Ohio River.

The victims apparently were shot at random by the gunman, who had no accomplices, Issac said. The first 911 call came 55 seconds after the first shot, and it took police 3-and-a-half minutes to arrive on scene.

Sammarco posted Wednesday on Facebook, asking how officials will explain to his parents "they will never see their son again because of a senseless shooting in a foreign country".

One witness, James Walker told CNN affiliate WLWT, said he heard about eight gunshots and got on his knees. "After that I started running". When the elevator doors opened, Hanson said her co-worker nearly stepped on a man's body.
