  • Authorities respond to the scene of a shooting at Cincinnati's Fountain Square

No officers were injured.

If it had taken longer to kill him, Perez could have killed many more people, Mayor John Cranley said. He says officers immediately charged toward the sound of gunfire coming from the Fifth Third Bancorp's 30-story headquarters along Cincinnati's Fountain Square. He said it "could have been much, much worse" if not for the immediate police response to end the threat.

The slain shooter acted alone, said Isaac, who commended the responders for putting their lives at risk to stop the bloodshed. The gun "appears to have been legally purchased", Isaac said.

"He was very quiet", said Martinez, who speaks only limited English.

By Thursday afternoon, police had executed a search warrant at Perez's North Bend apartment.

KIM COMMITS: North Korean Leader Says He's 'UNEQUIVOCALLY COMMITTED' to Denuclearization
Kim Il Sung, then 35, delivered a speech and repeatedly cheered on his military and fellow dictator Joseph Stalin. Seoul and Pyongyang both want a declaration to formally end the 1950-53 Korean War, which ended in an armistice.

Police told the FOX 19 that they are still sweeping the building but it is secure. "Square and surrounding area will be closed to foot traffic", police wrote.

Hundreds of people gathered Friday to remember the victims at a vigil in Fountain Square, just steps from the site of the shooting. It is home to retail stores, business officers, hotels and eateries. The Fifth Third Center sits on the square.

Another witness told FOX19 that he thought there was movie filming until he saw police carrying a wounded woman away from the scene and saw officers rushing to the scene.

"She walked in the door and he shot her", Cain told The Enquirer, saying that he heard up to 15 shots fired.

"I made it out to see my kids, to see another day", she said in relief. Then, she heard more that "sounded as if they were getting closer and closer", the Associated Press reported. The woman got back in the elevator and rode up to her floor, where Hanson said she was in shock and unable to form complete sentences.

Police do not know what why the shooter chose to open fire in the lobby of the skyscraper that houses the banks headquarters.

Police earlier characterized it as an "active shooter/officer involved shooting incident" in a tweet, but did not elaborate.

Whitney Austin, a senior product manager for digital lending at Fifth Third Bank and the mother of two children, ages 5 and 7, said in the statement the family was "overwhelmed by the support we have received from coworkers, family, friends, and total strangers".

Gov. Kasich went on to commend law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel for their swift reaction to the scene and shared his sympathies with the victims.
