Louisville Police Officer Shot Released From Hospital After Months of Recovery

(WHAS11) — 109 days after a mass shooting in downtown Louisville, a young police officer who was critically injured during a shootout with the gunman was released from the hospital after months of “remarkable” recovery.

On April 10, 2023, Louisville Metro Police Officer Nickolas Wilt, 26, responded to the shooting at Old National Bank when he was shot. He was then rushed to UofL Hospital, where he remained in critical condition for nearly a month.

After multiple surgeries and procedures at UofL Hospital and Jewish Hospital, his condition improved enough to be transferred to Frazier Rehabilitation Institute on May 10 to start neuro and physical rehabilitation, health officials said in a press release. CONTINUE
