    My brother works there. Said it occurred in a different building than the one he's in.

    SWAT is currently clearing the building.

    WLWT is saying police have confirmed 4 victims transferred to UC Medical. No word on fatalities. Suspect has been neutralized.

    This is so surreal. I was supposed to be down there today and get there right at this time. I decided to reschedule. Insane.

    Was it a bank robbery or just a random shooting.

    They don't seem to know much for sure at this point. The 5/3 Building is a 30 story high rise office tower in downtown Cincinnati where they have most of their corporate workforce in the area, but it does have a bank branch somewhere inside.

    Fox 19 saying it happened in the lobby and loading dock of the 5/3 Building, so doesn't sound like a bank robbery.

    This is scary stuff. Can't even count the number of times I've been in that exact area in just the last couple years.
