According to the police, he live streamed the attack on Instagram.

It has now been revealed that Sturgeon texted his family just minutes before the shooting.

He sent his family an “I love you” message, the Daily Mail revealed.

The attack happened at the Old National Bank in Louisville, Kentucky.

Sturgeon was reportedly set to be released from the bank that same day.

However, the police have not yet confirmed his motive.

Police released body camera footage Tuesday showing officers approaching the bank as a series of shots were fired.

After running to the scene and running toward gunfire, an officer shot the gunman at 8:44 a.m., three minutes after he arrived.

“I think I got him! I think he’s down!” the policeman yelled.

“Suspects down! Get the officer!” he continued.

Before he was taken down, bodycam footage appears to show the gunman shooting officer Nickloas Wilt, 26, in the head.

The police officer is in critical condition after brain surgery.

Sturgeon’s victims were senior vice president Tommy Elliott, 63, market executive Jim Tutt, 64, senior vice president of commercial real estate Josh Barrick, 40, commercial bank agent Juliana Farmer, 57, and Deana Eckert, 57.

“No words can express our sadness, fear and horror at the unimaginable harm our son Connor has caused to innocent people,” the Sturgeon family said in a statement obtained by ABC News.
