Witnesses described the gunman has having a “long assault rifle” and firing multiple shots inside the bank on the first floor near the conference room.

“He just started firing,” one witness told WHAS. “I didn’t see his face. We were in the conference room. Whoever was next to me got shot, their blood’s on me.”
