Police Say A Louisville Bank Shooter Lawfully Purchased An Ar-15-style Rifle Six Days Before He Used It To Kill Five Colleagues

Six days prior to using it to murder five of his coworkers at a downtown bank, the mass shooter in Louisville legally purchased an AR-15-style rifle from a nearby gun store, according to the acting Louisville Metro Police chief.

According to authorities, Connor Sturgeon, 25, livestreamed the horrifying attack at the Old National Bank on Instagram.

Investigators are currently going through the video in an effort to determine what exactly happened during the atrocity, which also left numerous people injured, including a police officer who was shot in the head.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, the devastation marked the 146th mass shooting this year with four or more victims, excluding the gunman.
