LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Two people are dead, and two others hurt after an early morning shooting outside of a crowded venue on Shepherdsville Road.
Investigators believe the shooting happened following a fight inside the Unity Palace Event Center.
According to the venue’s website, the space is used for rentals and can hold up to 350 people.
Police told WHAS11 News while on the scene, EMS found two people with gunshot wounds and took them to the UofL Hospital. They later found out two others with gunshot wounds were taken to the hospital by private means.
A spokesperson for LMPD said two of those victims had died at the hospital but did not provide a specific time. The Jefferson County Coroner's Office has identified the victims as 22-year-old Darius Anderson and 22-year-old La'Troy Hornbeak.
Officers said it was all hands-on deck as they pieced together what happened.
“We literally had every resource we had tied up with the shooting scene trying to get it contained,” Major Corey Robinson said. “It was a really big scene.”
Police said while they were working the shooting investigation, a robbery was reported right across the street at the Circle K.
The robbery suspect was later caught, and the cases are not connected.
