Police say four people are dead, including the gunman, in a downtown Cincinnati bank shooting. Police Chief Eliot Isaac said the shooter opened fire early Thursday morning at the loading dock of the Fifth Third Bank building, then entered the bank's lobby where he was confronted by police, per the AP. The gunman was shot dead by an officer, reports WCVB. Without commenting on a possible motive, Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said the gunman was "actively shooting innocent victims" and that it was a "horrific" scene. On Twitter, Ohio Gov. John Kasich shared his "deepest sympathies with the innocent victims of this violent attack." Per the Dayton Daily News, police say two people have been hospitalized with injuries.
