Victim identified in Victory Park fatal shooting

Victory Park shooting victim identified

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Crime tape and police cars. It was a scene Pedra Fant says she had to see for herself.

“My cousin's dead,” Fant cried.

Fant says her cousin, Brandon Lewis, was shot and killed just steps away from Victory Park. She talked only to WHAS11 News.

“This really shouldn't have happened to my cousin. My cousin isn't out here. He doesn't do nothing to nobody,” Fant said.

Police responded to the shooting near 22nd and Greenwood to find three people shot. People who live near Victory Park did not want to show their faces but described what they heard.

“It sounded like a machine gun. I didn't know. I was like is that fireworks or a machine gun? But I knew it was something that was high-powered. That's what it sounded like,” a neighbor said.

Fant says her cousin was sitting in his car when he was shot.  And the person who did it drove away.

“He was chilling. This is where we're from. This is our neighborhood. We sit out here. We have family all through here. We come and we sit and we chill. That's not a crime. We shouldn't be in our car listening to music and end up dead,” Fant said.

With no arrests, Fant says she's hoping someone will speak up and get justice for her family.

“I just know that my cousin's dead and whoever did it I just hope they get caught or something happens.  I probably shouldn't say that but that's just really how I feel from the bottom of my heart,” she said.

The other two people who were shot are still in the hospital in critical condition.  Police still aren't sure if they're looking for just one person or multiple people responsible for this shooting.  If you have any information that could help in this investigation, you can call their anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD.
