LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A shooting investigation in the Pleasure Ridge Park Neighborhood has now turned to a murder investigation after the victim died at the hospital.
Police were called out to a home in the 7300 block of Sky Blue Avenue just after 10 p.m. Sunday where they found 37-year-old Michael Felker suffering from a gunshot wound outside a residence.
Felker was transported to University of Louisville Hospital in critical condition. The coroner said Felker was pronounced dead at 11 p.m. due to a gunshot wound to the chest.
An LMPD spokesperson said the homicide unit has took over the case due to the extent of Felker’s injuries, but it didn't take long for police to arrest a suspect.
George R. Geary was arrested Monday morning and police said he admitted to shooting Felker Sunday night after the two got into an argument.
Geary was booked into Metro Corrections and is charged with murder.
