According to TheNYTimes:

A 23-year-old man [Connor Sturgeon] armed with a rifle shot and killed four fellow employees at a bank in downtown Louisville, Ky., on Monday morning, the police said. Nine others were wounded in the attack, three of them critically. The suspect, who the police said was livestreaming the rampage, was killed by the police after exchanging fire on the scene.

Paul Humphrey, the deputy chief of the Louisville Metro Police Department, said that the police received calls around 8:30 a.m. about a shooting at Old National Bank and when they arrived on the scene, “they encountered the suspect almost immediately, still firing gunshots.”

Chief Humphrey said that the gunman, whose name was not immediately released, was also confirmed dead at the scene. “We do not know exactly the circumstances of his death at this time,” he said.

The police did not give a motive for the shooting, but they said that the gunman had a connection to the bank and may have been a current or former employee. “We believe this is a lone gunman involved in this that did have a connection to the bank,” Chief Humphrey said at a news conference.

Four people were killed inside the bank, the deputy chief said, and at least eight people, including a police officer, were taken to a nearby hospital. He said that two people were in critical condition, including a police officer who was in surgery on Monday morning.

“There is no active danger known to the public at this time,” Chief Humphrey said.

The bank is across the street from Louisville Slugger Field, a minor-league baseball stadium where the Louisville Bats play. The area includes many hotels and apartment complexes.

The University of Louisville Hospital received nine patients, including two police officers, from the shooting, a spokeswoman, Heather Fountaine, said in an email. She said at least three of the patients had been discharged by early Monday afternoon.

The chief executive of Old National Bank, Jim Ryan, traveled to the building in Louisville with other executives on Monday.
