Louisville Metro Police Reported That the Fifth Victim Passed Away

The mass shooting at a bank in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, on Monday has claimed a fifth victim. The Louisville Metro Police Department reports that Deana Eckert, 57, passed away in the hospital late on Monday.

She worked as an executive administrator at the Old National Bank, where the shooting occurred, according to NPR.

On Monday, authorities released the names of the other four victims. The Louisville Metro Police Department reported that James Tutt, 64, Thomas Elliot, 63, Juliana Farmer, 45, and Joshua Barrick, 40, were all killed at the Old National Bank.

According to Interim Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel of the Louisville Metro Police Department, the shooter used a rifle and live-streamed the assault. The shooting’s motivation was kept a secret.

Eight other people were hurt in the shooting in addition to the dead.

Prior to Eckert’s passing, hospital officials reported that three injured people, including recently sworn-in police officer Nickolas Wilt, 26, were listed in critical condition, while three other injured people were in non-critical condition and three other injured people had been discharged.

Monday around 8:30 a.m. LMPD Deputy Chief Paul Humphrey stated at a Monday press conference that at approximately 2:00 a.m. ET, dispatchers received a call reporting an active shooter at the Old National Bank. Shots were still being fired when they arrived, and the police and the shooter were exchanging gunfire.

Governor of Kentucky Andy Beshear said during the press conference that the shooting was “awful” and added, “I have a very close friend who didn’t make it today, I have another close friend who didn’t either, and one who is at the hospital that I hope is going to make it through.”

The governor continued, fighting back tears, “There are a lot of people who are hurting today.” The love and compassion we have been so good at demonstrating for one another should be used to envelop them.

President Biden responded to the shooting by tweeting, “Once again, our nation mourns after a senseless act of gun violence – Jill and I pray for the lives lost and impacted by today’s shooting.” When will Republicans in Congress take action to safeguard our communities when too many Americans are losing their lives as a result of inaction?

Just two weeks had passed since a mass shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville left three children and three adults dead.

Anyone with information about the Louisville shooting is asked to contact the Louisville Metro Police Department at 502-574-LMPD, according to the authorities.
