Suspect in Mass Shooting at Louisville Bank was 2020 University of Alabama Graduate
A man accused of killing four people and injuring nine others in a mass shooting at a bank in Louisville Kentucky Monday held two degrees from the University of Alabama, school spokespeople have confirmed.
Preliminary reports have identified the shooter as 25-year-old Connor Sturgeon, who was an employee at Old National Bank in Louisville.
Interim LMPD Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel confirmed Sturgeon's name during a 2 p.m. press conference.
A spokesperson for the University confirmed they had been made aware of the shooting and of Sturgeon's alleged connection to it. They said he received both a bachelor's and a master's degree at the University.
UA said Sturgeon took advantage of UA's Accelerated Master’s Program and earned both a bachelor's degree in commerce and business administration as well as a master of science degree in finance.
Sturgeon reportedly received both degrees simultaneously in December 2020.
The AP reports that the shooting killed at least four people and wounded at least nine others. They say a lone gunman opened fire in the bank, exchanged fire with police officers and was dead at the scene.
