According to Interim Chief Jackie Gwinn-Villaroel, 25-year-old Connor Sturgeon, who was an employee at the Old National Bank where the shooting occurred, purchased the firearm used in the attack on April 4th and deliberately targeted specific individuals.

Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg said shooter Connor Sturgeon was not given notice of termination and was an active employee of the Old National bank.

Sturgeon was fatally shot by authorities at the scene.

The victims of the shooting have been identified as Tommy Elliott (63), Jim Tutt (64), Josh Barrick (40), and Jiliana Farmer (57). One of the injured individuals, Deanna Eckert (57), succumbed to her injuries and passed away at a later time.

Deanna was a very kind and thoughtful person,” the mayor said.

At approximately 8:30 a.m. on Monday, gunshots were reported at the scene.

The police chief stated that Officer Wilt, who had only graduated from training 10 days prior to the incident, along with other officers bravely confronted the shooter at the Old National Bank and prevented him from harming additional individuals.

The act of heroism can’t be overstated on yesterday. They did what they were called to do. They answered that call to protect and serve,” she said.

The perpetrator of the attack reportedly livestreamed the incident, and Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, promptly removed the stream from their platforms.
