Police: 1 dead, another injured in S. Barbee Way shooting

Police say one man is dead with another transported to the hospital after a shooting in the 700 block of S. Barbee Way Monday.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – One person killed and another taken to the hospital after being shot in the Saint Joseph neighborhood.

“I came out and was headed to the store and I looked down the street and saw the lights down there and that was just devastating,” Joan Harryman, who lives down the street, said.

It's a scene, Harryman, a lifelong Saint Joseph neighborhood resident, is not used to seeing.

“Very unnerving. Very. Like I said, I've never heard of a shooting in this area before,” Harryman said.

Police say when they got to the 700 Block of North Barbee Way they found one man shot to death inside of a home. Another person on scene told police he had been shot as well. He was taken to University Hospital.

“It's heartbreaking...heartbreaking. This is a great neighborhood and nothing has ever happened here,” Christopher Wilson, who also lives in the area, said.

Police say they are not looking for any other suspects at this time but neighbors say they still feel uneasy.

“For it to happen in this area, that's not what we want to hear,” Wilson said.
