LMPD: 2 men found dead in Lyndon, shot 'multiple times'

Police investigate deaths of 2 men in Lyndon

LYNDON, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The Partridge Meadow Apartments in Lyndon are usually quiet, with this Sunday afternoon not all that different.

"It's very quiet," Jennifer Neuendorff, who lives in this neighborhood, said. "It's very quiet. I've been here 20 years now and we haven't had any problems like this before."

The afternoon's peace would not last, broken by the arrival of emergency vehicles.

"Next thing you know, I see fire department, ambulance, five or six police officers come up to the scene," Tony Reeves, who lives in the apartments, said.

LMPD said officers received a call around 5 p.m. Sunday from a family member who arrived at one of the apartments at Partridge Meadows, finding two men in their 20s or 30s dead. Police said the two men were shot multiple times.

"It was just too close to home," Neuendorff said. "I didn't know anything was going on."

"I've only been here three months, but I mean Louisville is becoming crazy. And it's summertime, so it's just the beginning."

LMPD homicide detectives arrived to the apartments to try to learn about what happened, but many neighbors, even those living next to the apartment, said they did not notice anything different from the usual quietness in the neighborhood.

"Nobody heard anything, so I'm surprised the neighbors didn't call the police when this went down," Reeves said.

As police continue to try to piece together the information, neighbors say they're viewing this incident as an anomaly rather than the beginning of a trend in the community.

"Nothing's going to change for me. I still feel fine," Reeves said. "I'm pretty sure everybody else will feel fine."

"So it's a little scary, but it's not going to deter me to moving from here though," Neuendorff said.

Police are still trying to learn how the victims were connected to the apartment. LMPD is also still looking for suspects. Anyone with information is asked to contact police through the anonymous tip line: 574-LMPD.
