More information was given at the press conference in regards to the condition of the five officers who suffered gunshot wounds during the incident. 

Ziman says that four of five officers have been released from the hospital. 

A sixth officer, a 24-year-old male, suffered a minor knee injury while responding to the incident. 

Identities of the officers have not yet been released.

During the press conference more information was given about the shooter, who was killed by police on scene.

Ziman again identified the shooter as 45-year-old Gary Martin of Selmarten Rd. in Aurora. 

Martin was arrested six times by the Aurora Police Department, including arrests for traffic offenses and domestic violence related issues. 

Aurora Police officers last arrested Martin in 2008 for Violating an Order of Protection.

Martin was last arrested in 2017 by the Oswego Police Department for Disorderly Conduct and Criminal Damage to Property. 

Ziman also provided more information regarding the weapon, a Smith and Wesson handgun, that was used during the incident. 

In Jan. 2014, Martin was issued an Illinois Firearm Owner's Identification card.

On Mar. 6, 2014, Martin applied to purchase a handgun from a local gun dealer in Aurora. 

Martin took possession of a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber handgun from that same local dealer on Mar. 11, 2014.

Ziman said that Martin applied for a concealed carry permit at an unknown location on Mar. 16, 2014.

During the fingerprinting and background process it was discovered that Martin had a felony conviction for Aggravated Assault out of Mississippi

The date of the conviction was Aug. 3, 1995. 

Police officials said during the conference that the conviction would not have necessarily shown up on a criminal background check that would be conducted to obtain a FOID card.

Once the conviction was discovered, Martin's concealed carry permit was rejected and his FOID card was revoked by Illinois State Police.

A detailed timeline of the incident was also given by Aurora Police Dep. Chief Keefe Jackson. 

The first call reporting an active shooter situation was received at 1:24 p.m.

More shots were fired in the following minutes, with 911 calls coming in at 1:27 p.m.

First responders arrived on scene at 1:28 p.m., at which point the first officer was fired upon and the Aurora Police Special Response group was called to the scene.

At 1:31 p.m., four victims were reported in the upstairs area of the Henry Pratt building. A victim was found in the bay area of the building at the same time.

Three more officers were shot in the following minutes. The BEARCAT vehicle was called in at 1:31 p.m. to extract wounded officers and look for the injured.

No contact was reported between officers and Martin from 1:53 p.m. to 2:58 p.m.

Officers made contact with Martin at 2:58 p.m., and he was neutralized at 2:59 p.m.

Mueller Water Products, of whom Henry Pratt is a subsidiary, released a statement on social media saying they are "shocked and saddened by the horrific tragedy that occurred."

They went on to say "our hearts are with the victims and their loved ones, the first responders, the Aurora community and the entire Mueller family during this extremely difficult time."
