i don't think active shooter is considered news in America, it's more like a formality.

So it's not an "active shooter" as of the posting of the OP, the shooter is "down" (unspecified definition of that word) and there are no active threats at this time.
Thanks for the post--I'm in the Cincinnati Metro area, so while I'm far enough away for it not to be my problem, it's close enough to pay attention.

UC medical center is part of the University of Cincinnati and a stones throw from the main campus, basically across the street.
You live on the West side, right?
UC is basically county hospital so they are used to treating gunshot wounds and it's always full of cops.
