Isaac said the gunman then entered the bank's lobby where three to four officers exchanged gunfire with the shooter. It's unclear if the gunman shot himself or was shot by officers.
Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said the gunman was "actively shooting innocent victims" and that it was a "horrific" scene.
According to officials, there were five victims total in the shooting.

Two of the victims died at the hospital. One person is in critical condition and another person is in serious condition.
