The man who went on a shooting spree in a downtown Cincinnati bank this week killed two and wounding three more. He’s been identified as Omar Perez of North Bend, Ohio. Perez, who purchased the gun he used legally, was apparently under the impression that he was being watched. By someone.
A plaintiff named Omar Santa-Perez, whose listed North Bend, Ohio, address in court documents is the same searched by police on Thursday, filed two lawsuits in 2017 and 2018 claiming that large organizations “maintained electronic watch” or made “unwarranted intrusion” onto his personal devices, according to court records.
In December 2017, Santa-Perez filed a suit against NBCUniversal Inc. and TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. He sought $5.1 million in punitive damages claiming NBC Universal harassed him by eavesdropping on his personal electronics and that TD Ameritrade colluded with NBCUniversal to make that happen.
Bank security and bodycam footage has already been released which shows Perez walking through the Fifth Third Bank shooting at people he encountered. The video then cuts to the responding police officers running to the sound of gunfire and then shooting Perez through the bank’s window.
Some might consider the video NSFW.
