The city’s police chief, Eliot Isaac, said the suspect was Omar Enrique Santa Perez, 29, of North Bend, Ohio, a Cincinnati suburb. He said the shooter, who fired a 9-millimeter semi-automatic pistol during the incident, was not a former or current employee of the bank.

Investigators have not identified a motive for the shootings, Issac said. A search was conducted of his apartment, he said.

Santa Perez had about 200 rounds of ammunition with him during the shootings, Issac said. He said the firearm was apparently legally purchased.

The chief said he did not know if the suspect, who had lived in the Cincinnati area since 2015, had any history of mental illness.

The victims apparently were shot at random by the gunman, who had no accomplices, Issac said. Four Cincinnati police officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect, and he was killed by that gunfire. No officers were injured.
