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

Four people are dead, including the suspect, in a shooting at Fifth Third Bank in downtown Cincinnati Thursday morning.

Police said a gunman entered the building through a loading dock and made his way to the lobby of the office building.

MULTIPLE people were shot at a bank in the Midwestern US city of Cincinnati, according to media and police reports.

The gunman wasn't immediately identified, and police didn't comment on possible motive.

Five people were shot, some multiple times, and one victim died at the scene while two others succumbed to their injuries in hospital.

He says it "could have been much, much worse" if not for the immediate police response to end the threat.

"She walked in the door and he shot her", Leonard Cain told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Witness Cheryl Eagleson said she was across the street from the bank when she heard "loud pops" from a gun, prompting people to drop to the ground.

Ebony Ginyard, who works at a Dunkin' Donuts in Fountain Square, said she and other workers and customers dropped to the floor when the shooting erupted, according to Reuters.

The evidence includes footage from body police cameras and security cameras from around Fountain Square and Fifth Third Center.

James Walker told CNN affiliate WLWT: "I heard about eight gunshots, and I actually got on my knees".

Reporter Griffin Frank wrote, "My friends inside the 5/3 building are being told to "stay where they are" after @CincyPD reports an active shooter. After that, I started running", Richardson told the paper.

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".

The Enquirer also reports that bystanders said they heard "perhaps as many as 12" gunshots. Of those victims, two have died, one is in critical condition and one is in serious condition.

Fifth Third Bank is one of Cincinnati's dominant financial institutions with 121 local branches. "It could have been any one of us", Cranley said. Square and surrounding area will be closed to foot traffic.

Newcomer was doing work on the third floor of the building and "just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time", Cotter said.

"Random mass shootings, which plague our Nation, are not normal and we as a Country can't allow them to be normalized". The company in a statement said it's working with law enforcement and offers thoughts and prayers for "everyone caught up in this awful event".
