He had legally purchased the 9mm semi-automatic pistol used for the firing. He was not immediately determined to have any connection to the bank, according to detectives. "I think there's something sick at work here, and we as a country have got to deal with it".

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

Cincinnati's Fountain Square will reopen Friday, just a day after a gunman opened fire at civilians at the nearby Fifth Third Center. The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

Records show the shooter formerly lived in SC and South Florida and had been charged with some non-violent crimes years ago.

Afterward, police swarmed the gunman's apartment in North Bend, Ohio, about 15 miles west of Cincinnati.

"It could have been any one of us", Cranley said. She said the gunman was so close she could smell the gunpowder as he fired.

The motive of the shooter, whose identity has not been released, was not known. But in the past, he has made allegations against at least one financial corporation.

In 2017, he filed a lawsuit against CNBC Universal Media, LLC and TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation, alleging that the two companies infiltrated his personal electronic devices, uncovered his identity and published private details about his life. The judge said in the document that the complaint was "rambling, hard to decipher, and borders on the delusional".

A gunman in a white dress shirt and slacks walks briskly through the Fifth Third Center's lobby, a satchel slung across his shoulder, as he fires his handgun seemingly at whomever he comes across.

Cincinnati City Councilman P.G. Sittenfield tweeted one of the first indications that some people had been killed.

Witnesses reported seeing victims on stretchers. He had gone to several businesses before going to the bank, he said. I kind of got down on the ground and then all the cops started coming. "And then we came into picture after that - his friends", said Yash Yeddulapalll, who said he roomed with Kandepi in college in India and was his friend for eight years. They said the parents were looking for a bride for Pruthvi. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and all involved", medical officials said.

Federal agents were on the scene as police searched through the building.

Fountain Square is a heavily trafficked landmark in the middle of the city. He had completed his post-graduation and was working as a financial consultant at the bank in Cincinnati. The shooting took place at the corporate headquarters, a skyscraper on Cincinnati's main downtown square. "The scourge of gun violence leaves only loss", Sittenfeld wrote on Twitter.
