6th patient discharged, 2 patients remain in hospital after Louisville mass shooting
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE/Gray News) - University of Louisville Health on Wednesday said a sixth patient has been discharged from the hospital following Monday’s mass shooting in downtown Louisville.
Two patients remain in treatment at the hospital.
Louisville Metro Police Department Officer Nickolas Wilt remains listed in critical condition. The other patient is in stable and fair condition.
Five people were killed and eight people were injured in the shooting at Old National Bank on Monday morning after reports initially came in for “an active aggressor” in the area, according to Louisville Metro Police.
Officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect and the suspect also died at the scene.
There were three officers injured in Monday’s shooting, with Wilt being listed in critical condition after being shot in the head.
Police had said in an update Tuesday morning that Wilt was still in critical condition at the hospital.
Chief of Police Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel added that “he’s stable, but he’s looking better. And so we’re hopeful and we’ll continue to pray and we just thank everybody for all of the thoughts that have been sent our way as we deal with this tragedy.”
Authorities on Tuesday said the investigation continued and released body camera video from the shooting. They released 911 calls from the shooting Wednesday.
The shooting, the 15th mass killing in the country this year, the Associated Press reported, comes just two weeks after a former student killed three children and three adults at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, Tennessee, about 160 miles to the south.
