(CNN) — A mass shooting at a bank in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, on Monday morning left five people dead inside the building and sent six people to a local hospital, police said.

The shooter is dead, police added.

The Louisville Metro Police Department said it responded to “an active aggressor” around 8:30 a.m. at the Old National Bank on East Main Street. Officers were on scene in minutes, police said.

FBI Louisville described the incident as a shooting, and other officials urged residents to stay away from the area.

One of those shot was a police officer, according to preliminary information from a source with direct knowledge of the scene on the ground. The source said there were shots exchanged between the shooter and police during the incident.

Video from the scene taken by CNN affiliate WDRB shows a large police presence in the area as well as shattered glass at the entrance of the Old National Bank.

A local man told CNN affiiliate WLKY he got a call from his wife, who works at Old National Bank, who said there was an active shooter and she was locked in a vault inside the bank. The man, Caleb Goodlett, called 911 but officers were already aware of the shooting.

He described it as a traumatic phone call at 8:30 a.m., and said he has since talked to and seen his wife and that she is fine.

Hagan Curd said he was walking his dog on East Main Street on Monday morning when he began to see people running in his direction. Several loud gunshots can be heard in video he took at the scene.

“I saw people running and then some others got out (of) their car and began to run as well,” Curd said. “Then I heard police yelling and telling people there was a shooter at the bank and to back away.”

The Louisville metro area, located along Kentucky’s border with Indiana, has a population of about 630,000 people as of the 2020 Census. The 300 block of East Main Street is bordered to the east by the minor league stadium Louisville Slugger Field and includes a bank, dentist’s office, a furniture store and the Louisville Ballet.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said in a tweet he was headed to the scene of the shooting. “Please pray for all of the families impacted and for the city of Louisville,” he wrote.
