ROSELAWN (FOX19) -
Cincinnati Police are expected to hold a press conference regarding the fatal shooting around 4 p.m. The live-stream will play above when the briefing begins.
Cincinnati police are searching for a suspect who shot and killed a man in broad daylight Tuesday at a Roselawn ATM.
Daniel Muscarella, a technician for ATM manufacturer DieBold, was working on the free-standing machine when he was shot, according to officials. The incident occurred shortly after 1 p.m. in the parking lot of PNC bank, located in the 7100 block of Reading Road.
Muscarella, 54, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Nearby Woodward Technical High School and the Academy of Multilingual Emergent Studies were placed on lock down while police investigated.
A garbage truck possibly connected to the shooting was stopped and searched around 2:30 p.m. on Hamilton Avenue. Authorities say they believed the shooter discarded the gun inside the truck.
Police have not announced if a weapon was recovered.
No suspect information has been released at this time, but authorities said they believe the shooting was a robbery gone wrong. An investigation by the Homicide Unit of Cincinnati Police is ongoing.
"We've lost such an important and highly valued member of our company," said a representative from Diebold, the largest manufacturer of ATMs in the United States
Valerie Bell, a local resident who frequents that PNC ATM, said she has used the location thinking the free-standing ATM was a safer option than a drive-through.
"I feel that it's open space, and if anything happen it'd be more logical for someone to see me or for me to get away," Bell told FOX19 NOW.
Authorities ask anyone with information on the shooting to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
