LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Doctors are calling it a miracle.  A Louisville father shot while leaving a nightclub is expected to survive.  But the victim’s brother says the shooting happened over a song and the brother now has a message to those responsible.

“Cause he booed some cowards song they felt like they had to get back at him. First they tried jumping him. That didn't work then they tried jumping him again, that didn't work so they wanted to shoot him,” Philip Glore the victim's brother said. “It’s all because of ignorance. It’s all because people want to prove something. They get their feelings hurt because somebody doesn't agree with what they are doing.”

“If you are really true about what you are doing you would use that criticism to do better. But in the urban community we use that to get back at somebody,” Glore said.

Glore's brother was shot on Main Street near Butchertown leaving a nightclub early Sunday morning. He was in his car when police say someone drove up and shot him.

The victim lost control of his car and crashed near Lincoln Elementary School. Glore says he was targeted because he "booed" a song performed by a local artist a while back at a show.

“Step into do something otherwise this cycle is going to keeping on continuing. More brothers are going to end up in the hospital some gonna end up in the grave don’t let it happen to you," Glore said.

No arrests have been made in this case.  If you have any information you are urged to call police at 574-LMPD.
