Louisville gunman’s parents break silence over ‘warning signs’ after shooting

THE FAMILY of the suspected shooter in a mass shooting in Kentucky has released a statement regarding the killings.

Connor Sturgeon, 25, allegedly killed five employees and shot responding officers as he was about to be fired from the Old National Bank in Louisville.

Five people were killed and eight others injured in the shooting.

“There was never any warning sign or indication that he was capable of this shocking act,” the family said in a statement obtained by ABC News.

“No words can express our sadness, fear and horror at the unimaginable harm our son Connor has caused to innocent people, their families and the entire Louisville community,” the family said.

“We mourn her loss and that of our son Connor. We pray for all traumatized by his senseless acts of violence and are deeply grateful for the courage and heroism of the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department.”

While the family said they were working to address Sturgeon’s mental health issues, they added that there was never any indication he would do anything this violent.

“While we have many unanswered questions, we will continue to work fully with law enforcement and do what we can to help everyone understand why and how this happened.”
