LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A woman is dead and a man is hospitalized after a shooting in the Clifton Heights neighborhood. 

Louisville Metro Police (LMPD) was dispatched on a report of a shooting in the 600 block of Country Club Road around 2:00 p.m. Friday. 

Police said when they arrived on scene they found Breona Brown, 30, who had sustained at least one gunshot wound, as well as a man who had sustained multiple gunshot wounds. 

LMPD said Brown was pronounced dead on the scene, while the man was taken to UofL Hospital and is expected to survive.
