Four dead in mass shooting at Louisville bank

In a mass shooting at a bank in Louisville, Kentucky, four people were killed and eight others were injured.

The injured were taken to a hospital, and two police officers were shot, one of whom is critically injured.

Police believe the Old National Bank shooter, who also died at the scene, was a “lone gunman” and a previous bank employee. According to a federal law enforcement source, the shooter used an AR-15-style rifle.

Deputy Chief Paul Humphrey of the  Louisville Metro Police Department said at a news conference “We believe this is a lone gunman involved in this that did have a connection to the bank.

“We’re trying to establish what that connection was to the business, but it appears he was a previous employee.”

According the Daily News, Police said they were alerted to the incident on the 300 block of E. Main St. around 8:30 a.m., and that officers arrived at the scene within three minutes while the suspect was still firing.

The police said a shootout with the suspect followed, though the cops had not confirmed whether he was fatally shot by officers or he killed himself.

“This is a tragic event, but it was it was the heroic response of officers that made sure that no more people were more seriously injured than what happened,” Humphrey said.
