Louisville Metro Police Officer Nickolas Wilt Released from Rehabilitation and Returns Home

After a challenging 109-day journey, Louisville Metro police officer Nickolas Wilt has been released from Frazier Rehabilitation Institute and is finally going home.

Wilt had been receiving medical care at the hospital for the past three and a half months after sustaining critical injuries during the Old National Bank mass shooting on April 10. The shooting claimed the lives of five individuals: Tommy Elliott, Jim Tutt, Josh Barrick, Juliana Farmer, and Deana Eckert.

Following the incident, Wilt was listed in critical condition for nearly a month. He underwent multiple surgeries and procedures at the University of Louisville Hospital and Jewish Hospital. On May 10, he was transferred to Frazier Rehabilitation Institute to begin neuro and physical rehabilitation after showing signs of improvement.

Throughout the last three and a half months, Wilt’s journey has been described as remarkable by doctors and his family. The progress he has made has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Governor Andy Beshear shared a photo with Wilt on Friday, expressing his gratitude and appreciation for the officer’s heroic actions. The Governor tweeted, “Kentucky, our prayers were heard. @LMPD Officer Nick Wilt is headed home with his family. Officer Wilt is a hero who ran toward danger to save the lives of several of my friends. I am forever grateful for him and his bravery. Let’s keep praying for him.”

As Wilt left Frazier Rehab, he was honored by his fellow officers and accompanied by his family. He was then driven to Southeast Christian Church, where well-wishers lined the streets to send him off. The van continued to Oldham County, where community members gathered along Highway 53 in La Grange to welcome Wilt back.

The Louisville Metro Police Foundation has set up a donation site to assist with Wilt’s medical expenses. Those who wish to contribute can do so by clicking here.
