During a video meeting on Monday morning, an Old National Bank employee witnessed a shooting and immediately contacted 911 upon seeing the gunman enter the meeting room.

The 911 call, released on Wednesday, captured the distressed worker from a different branch of the bank exclaiming, “There’s an active shooter there!” While describing what she saw, the woman was in a state of distress, crying and shouting.

She noted the presence of someone lying on the floor and multiple gunshots before the assailant entered the board meeting.

Amidst Monday’s shooting at Old National Bank in Louisville, a female employee made a 911 call while hiding in a closet inside the building. She informed the dispatcher that she believed around eight or nine people had been shot.

The woman described the suspected shooter, whom she identified as a young, approximately 6-foot-tall male, and disclosed that he worked with them.

The call captured multiple gunshots in the background as the woman sought refuge. After the shooting ceased, first responders reached out to the woman in the closet.

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.
