Banker from Andhra Pradesh among three killed in Cincinnati bank shooting

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. A search was conducted of his apartment, he said.

Fountain Square is a heavily trafficked landmark in the middle of the city.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said the rapid police response probably prevented many more casualties. "Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone caught up in this bad event", the statement says.

The company didn't offer any details.

The 30-story building also houses other businesses, including a bakery and ice cream shop.

The bank operates some 1,200 banking centers in 10 US states.

The shooter is dead along with three of his victims.

An aunt of the man who killed three and injured two during a shooting Thursday broke down crying when she learned her nephew was responsible for the attack.

"I made it out to see my kids, to see another day", she said with relief.

Michael Richardson, who works in the bank building, told The Cincinnati Enquirer that he was standing outside the entrance when he heard gunshots in the lobby.

Bank manager Greg Harshfield, who on the 29th floor of the building when the shooting began, said he heard multiple shots and saw police arrive nearly immediately. Two, including Austin, remain hospitalized.
