The chief says they had a 'quick response' and 'there is no additional threat.'

No word about the suspect's identity or a motive at this time.

The first call came in around 9:15 a.m. Shots were fired in the lobby and loading dock.

Cincinnati shooting: Gunman ID'd as Omar Santa Perez
Updated 4:53 p.m. ET Sept. 6, 2018

Update, 4:45: The gunman who opened fire Thursday at Fifth Third Center was Omar Santa Perez, his family confirmed to The Enquirer.

According to records available online, Santa was a North Bend resident who previously lived in South Carolina and Florida and may have been a college student in the Cincinnati area.

Cincinnati police confirmed the identity of the shooter during a news conference.

Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said investigators have not established a motive, but they are confident Perez acted alone. He said Perez has lived in the Cincinnati area since at least 2015.

"This is a horrific incident," Isaac said. "We're looking for any evidence that will provide greater insight into the motive."

Four dead, including suspect Omar Santa Perez, in shooting at Cincinnati Fifth Third Bank
CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati police on Thursday afternoon identified the gunman behind a deadly shooting at Fifth Third Center as 29-year-old Omar Enrique Santa-Perez of North Bend, Ohio. According to Police Chief Eliot Isaac, police began to receive calls about a shooter inside the Fountain Square landmark around 9:11 a.m. Perez shot five people, killing one on-scene and fatally wounding two others, before a group of four Cincinnati officers shot him "multiple times," Isaac said. While Santa-Perez's surviving victims were rushed to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, police determined he had been killed in the exchange of fire.
(Besides the guy from India) The other two victims were identified as Luis Felipe Calderón, 48, a bank employee, and Richard Newcomer, 64, a contractor who worked for Gilbane Building Company. One of the people wounded was in fair condition Friday and another patient was in serious condition at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
