Cincinnati Police Chief holds news conference about Fifth Third Center shooting

Emergency personnel and police respond to a reported active shooter situation near Fountain Square Thursday Sept. 6 2018 in Cincinnati

In all, the hospital received four gunshot wound victims from this morning's incident.

A shooting at a bank in the USA state of OH has left four people dead, including the gunman, police have said.

Those killed and wounded by the gunman "appear to be innocent victims", Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley told reporters, adding that police officers were at the scene "within seconds". Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said investigators have not established a motive, but they are confident Perez acted alone.

The building is located in Fountain Square, a hub for entertainment and dining in the city. He noted that it "could have been much, much worse" if not for the quick police response to the shooting.

The gunman entered a loading dock and opened fire before entering the lobby of the building, where several police officers engaged him, Isaac said. Although people tried to get her attention before she entered the building, she was wearing headphones and did not hear them.

Jaenetta Cook, who manages a bakery on the first floor, said she hurried to lock the door after the first two shots.

Yudy Martinez Perez broke down in sobs when she learned her nephew was the shooter, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

Streets around the building at the city's Fountain Square have been closed and police have since tweeted the surrounding area "remains on lockdown" until further notice. The shooting took place at the corporate headquarters, a skyscraper on Cincinnati's main downtown square.
