DailyMail.com reporters will bring you all the latest news as a mass shooting unfolds in downtown Louisville, Kentucky.
A witness who was driving by the Old National Bank in Louisville at about 8:30am described seeing a man lying face down on the sidewalk, and then heard gunfire erupt over her head.
‘I had just dropped my son of at work on River Road,’ she told WDRB. ‘I was at the stop light, and the first thing that I saw – there was a guy across the street at the intersection and he was lying down at the entrance to a hotel.’
‘As I was sitting at that intersection, gunfire erupted, like, right over my head. I didn’t know if it was going at the bank or out of the bank I took off.’
‘When I turned, I saw that one of the windows in the bank had been blown out,’ she said, adding that police arrived a short time later.
‘They were coming from everywhere,’ the witness said. ‘The police were coming out of their cars with black rifles. I just ducked in my car and waited there.’
Police said five people were killed in the shooting, and six have been transported to the hospital.
Authorities confirmed the shooter had been ‘neutralized,’ and that there is no present danger at the scene.
There is no longer an active aggressor threat. The suspected shooter has been neutralized.
