The officers then entered the building, subdued the suspect and began to render aid to the victims, Isaac said.
A Louisville woman who was shot several times Thursday during the mass shooting at Fifth Third Center in Cincinnati is in stable condition and already looking to make a difference. Cincinnati.com reported that the scene is now secure but that there are multiple victims.
There is no word about the suspect's identity or a motive at this time.
Leonard Cain told The Enquirer he was going into the bank when someone alerted him about the shooting.
Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said: "We send our prayers to the victims and their families". Chief Isaac said in a news conference that morning that employees in the building were evacuated by police and that he doesn't believe there is any additional threat.
"So, a very horrific situation", Isaac said at the shooting scene.
Officials with Fifth Third bank released a statement in wake of the shooting, saying in part, "Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone caught up in this awful event". Without the police's rapid response, "it could have been much, much worse", he said.
He then saw a woman who was also walking into the bank.

He also missed South Korea's opener here and only went on as a replacement in a surprising group-stage loss to Malaysia. South Korea took the lead early in the game but Uzbekistan bounced back in the second half, scoring two quick goals.

Another witness said he heard at least 15 shots.
The three men killed were Luis Felipe Calderon, 48; Pruthvi Raj Kandepi, 25; and Richard Newcomer, 64, according to the Hamilton County Coroner's office. Two other victims are being treated at University of Cincinnati hospital.
"She walked in the door and he shot her", Cain said. "So I took my headphones out and people were running away from the square and I peered around and about 30 seconds later I heard about five to 10 more gunshots and cops just started running toward the building".
Isaac said Santa Perez had moved to the Cincinnati area around 2015, and had seven previous addresses between then and Thursday.
Michael Richardson was outside on a smoke break when he said he heard gunshots coming from the bank lobby.
"I commend the law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel who swiftly responded to the scene and share my deepest sympathies with the innocent victims of this violent attack", he added. At least two ambulances were seen leaving the scene. "Police responding to 5th/3rd bank building for possible shooting", the station reported on Twitter. "I will be eating lunch on Fountain Square tomorrow, mindful of the true character of Cincinnati". "We didn't know where to go because we didn't have a backdoor", she told reporters.
