Police Respond to Active Shooter Situation in Downtown Cincinnati

The incident is the 15th mass shooting (with at least four victims) in the Cincinnati area since 2013.

A gunman carrying hundreds of rounds of ammunition opened fire in a downtown office building Thursday, killing three people and wounding at least two more before he was fatally shot by cops. When four police officers arrived, they shot the suspect through glass windows and killed him, Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said.

It is now unclear if the gunman shot himself or was killed by officers. Two others are injured and in critical condition.

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said: "We send our prayers to the victims and their families".

Cranley noted the building on the city's Fountain Square houses popular ice cream, sandwich and pastry shops.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said the rapid police response probably prevented many more casualties.

Leonard Cain tells The Cincinnati Enquirer that he was about to walk into the bank until someone told him about the shooting. Cain said he then saw a woman also walking into the bank, and that people tried to get her attention, but she was wearing headphones and did not hear them.
