Shooter kills 4 and wounds 8, including 2 police officers

At least four people were killed, and eight others were hurt in a shooting at the Old National Bank in Louisville, Kentucky.

According to Louisville Metro Police Deputy Chief Paul Humphrey, at least two police officers were shot during the confrontation with the shooter, and one of them is presently in critical condition and undergoing surgery.

The "lone gunman," according to the police, had a "connection to the bank." According to police, it appears he was a former bank employee while officials investigate that relationship.

The offender was located "almost immediately" by police when they arrived three minutes after receiving the call this morning, according to Louisville Metro Police Deputy Chief Paul Humphrey. The chief reported the individual was still shooting when they arrived.

The shooter and police engaged in gunfire. The shooter was declared dead at the scene.

Immediately calls for restrictions on the sale of “assault rifles” came out from Democrats, many of whom are elected officials over Louisville.

Governor Andy Beshear choked back tears as he spoke of the shooting this morning. "I have a very close friend that didn't make it today." He said that another person who died was a friend of his, and another is fighting for their life in the hospital.

The shooting is under investigation.
