The man who Thursday morning opened fire in the lobby of Fifth Third Center in Cincinnati, killing three people and injuring two others had ties to South Florida. 

Omar Santa-Perez lived in Lake Worth back in 2012 and had a record of low-level offenses. 

Court documents show in March 2012, Perez was arrested and charged with marijuana possession in Palm Beach County and again in July 2012. 

In 2010, the 29-year-old was arrested by Coconut Creek Police and charged with disorderly conduct. 

It's unclear how long Perez lived in South Florida before moving.
