NORTH BEND, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac says the suspect that shot and killed three people and injured two others is Omar Enrique Santa Perez.

Isaac says they believe Santa Perez, 29, was a lone shooter and there is no longer a threat to the public.

Officers received reports of a shooting at Fifth Third Bank downtown at 9:11 a.m. Thursday.

Once they arrived on the scene, officers found Santa Perez in the first floor lobby of the building, firing shots.

Officers shot and killed Santa Perez at the scene.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene, four others were taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where two more later died.

One has been upgraded to serious condition, the other is in fair condition.

Isaac says Santa Perez used a legally purchased 9 mm semi-automatic gun and had at least 200 rounds of ammunition on him.

Police say Santa Perez was a 'lone shooter' that suffered from mental health issues.

Santa Perez lived in a Miami suburb for a period of time in 2010, records say.

Broward County Sheriff's Office records show Santa Perez was arrested Oct. 29, 2010 in Coconut Creek for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence.

Santa Perez was fired from a company in Greenville, South Carolina in Oct. 2014. He was charged with trespassing because refused to leave the business.

Multiple law enforcement agencies conducted a search Thursday afternoon at an apartment building that is believed to be the home of the Fifth Third shooter in the 100 block of Miami Avenue in North Bend.

SWAT told FOX19 NOW nothing was found and the home was cleared.

Cincinnati police, FBI, ATF and the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office all responded to the scene.
