A city official described the footage of the horrifying murders to the outlet, explaining that it began by showing an AR-15-style gun.

It then showed a woman worker at the bank saying good morning to the gunman, the officer told CNN.

Immediately afterwards, the shooter can be heard saying, “You have to get out of here.”

The officer revealed that the gunman attempted to shoot the woman in the back, but the gun’s safety function was activated and the gun had to be loaded.

Once the gun was loaded and the safety released, the worker was reportedly shot in the back.

The woman’s identity has not been released publicly and her condition is unknown.

In the remainder of the live-streamed footage, which was quickly removed by Instagram, the gunman continued to fire at other workers at the bank as they tried to run away.

According to CNN, the video is also said to capture footage of the shooter sitting down in the bank’s lobby, apparently waiting for the police to arrive.

Sturgeon was shot dead by police after exchanging gunfire just minutes later.

A motive hasn’t been publicly revealed, but reports suggest Sturgeon had told a friend that morning that he was “going to kill everyone in the bank” and “feels suicidal.”


Five people were fatally killed in the massacre, including Tommy Elliott, 63, James Tutt, 64, Jiliana Farmer, 45, Joshua Barrick, 40, and Deana Eckert, 57.

One of the responding officers, Officer Nickolas Wilt, 26, was shot in the head and was in critical but stable condition after undergoing brain surgery.

Two other victims were in critical condition, police said.

While three others sustained non-life-threatening injuries and three others were released on Monday.


After the horrific shooting, the Daily Beast reported that Sturgeon was remembered by a friend and former teammate as a smart, popular star athlete.

Photos of Sturgeon discovered online appeared to show normal life with family and friends.

The 25-year-old was currently an employee of the bank.

According to his LinkedIn profile, he has been with the bank full-time since June 2021 after earning his master’s degree from the University of Alabama.
