Video caught on nearby surveillance cameras would also be made public once cops have screened it, Isaac said.

The shooting at the 30-story Fifth Third Center sent people running for cover across the city's Fountain Square amid cries of "Shooter!".

"Per Fifth Third Bank, the shooter was not an employee of Fifth Third", police spokeswoman Tiffaney Hardy said via email.

An ongoing investigation has provided no indication of the shooter's motive, according to Isaac, but "mental health issues" may have been a factor, he said.

Leonard Cain tells The Cincinnati Enquirer that he was about to walk into the bank until someone told him about the shooting.

Mayor John Cranley said the gunman was "actively shooting innocent victims" and lamented how commonplace gun violence has become in America during a press conference following the violent attack. "And I'm thinking about how I can make a difference in the future", Austin said.

"Horrific, grotesque and unacceptable", he said.

Fifth Third operates some 1,200 banking centers in 10 states.

"I looked behind me and saw the guy - he shot and then he shot again". "If he had gotten on the elevator, gone up to a floor, if he had been there earlier or a little bit longer, many more people would have been killed", Cranley said.

Wisely, Unsworth himself has elected to let Wood do all the talking for him-and to let Musk keep packing the evidence folder. Mr Unsworth's lawyer Mark Kennedy from the firm Howard Kennedy told the BBC that Mr Musk's allegations were baseless.

Almost three hours after the incident, several streets in downtown Cincinnati remained closed to traffic.

The Hamilton County Coroner's office identified the victims as Pruthvi Kandepi, 25; Luis Calderon, 48; and Richard Newcomer, 64.

Emergency officials rushed four more victims to a local hospital, where two were later pronounced dead. She said she did not know their condition.

Investigators say the shooting in the lobby and loading dock area of the bank located at 511 Walnut Street.

A large police presence cordoned off a portion of the city's downtown, and several ambulances could be seen at the scene.

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

"It started out apparently with an active shooter at the Fifth Third tower, there was an officer intervention and from there now it's just victims and things like that", a police officer told a CNN affiliate.

Jessica Hanson, a contractor with the bank's concierge company, works on one of the lower floors overlooking Fountain Square. Although people tried to get her attention before she entered the building, she was wearing headphones and did not hear them.

For example, the newspaper reports that one victim was found in a local ice cream shop and another was discovered at 5th and Walnut.
