Mourners hold hands during a vigil Friday, Sept. 7, 2018 in Cincinnati's Fountain Square near the site of Thursday's fatal shooting. Police rreports indicate multiple victims.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said the gunman was carrying a large amount of ammunition, and the rapid police response likely prevented many more casualties.

Fifth Third, which operates 1,200 banking centers across several states, in a statement offered its "thoughts and prayers" for everyone "caught up in this awful event".

The company didn't offer any details. The gunman was later shot dead by the police.

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

Fifth Third Bank is a bank headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio at Fifth Third Center.

The University of Cincinnati Medical Center received victims with gunshot wounds, a woman and three men, said Kelly Martin, senior director of UC Health.

Two other people were wounded.

25-year-old Pruthviraj Kandepi was working as a consultant at the bank in Cincinnati, USA.

An officer at the scene says there are at least two, and possibly more, people who've been shot.

He had fired 35 rounds inside the lobby as receptionists and other workers starting their day dove for cover, Isaac said.

One died at the scene.

The incident took place Thursday morning at the Fifth Third Bank in downtown Cincinnati.

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

The shooting began shortly after 9 a.m.

"As the officers approached the lobby area of the Fifth Third Center, they encountered a lone gunman actively firing shots in the first-floor lobby", he said. It is the principal subsidiary of Fifth Third Bancorp, a bank holding company.

Richard Newcomer, 64, a construction supervisor who was doing a project at the bank, was killed there Thursday morning. Police said the circumstances surrounding the violence and a motive are thus far elusive. Reports of the shooting came in around 9 a.m. local time. The shooter also died at the scene.
