    Yeah, I've seen reports the suspect has been detained, and reports from Fox19 that the suspect is dead, so who knows.

    Either way, they've been neutralized.

    If the shooter is dead, he died in custody. City councilman PG Sittenfeld tweeted about an hour ago that the shooter was in custody in critical condition.

    Call came in at 9:10am

    Individual entered the loading dock and started firing, then proceeded to the lobby.

    Exchanged shots with officers in the lobby.

    Three of the five victims have died, plus the shooter.

    Per the Cincinnati PD's twitter, the shooting took place in the lobby and loading dock.

    I have a meeting in the building across the street next week. Girlfriend works just a couple blocks away.

    Sounds like CPD’s response was swift and this obviously could have been a lot worse if the violence had made it out on to the street.

    Channel 12 was reporting this was possibly a disgruntled ex employee. An old friend of mine works in that building and was outside when the shots started flying, and is ok, but is quite shaken up.

    All 4 of them are in good shape, thankfully.

    I work a few blocks away - our Company was advising us not to go outside. Rumors already circulating about a group of employees were let go just yesterday.

    Thinking of my 5/3 friends!!

    Reports are that the shooter was not a former or current employee of 5/3.
