LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Authorities in Oldham County are investigating two separate weekend shootings with similar details.

"Both shootings occurred in residential neighborhoods, involved victims on foot being shot near the street, with witnesses describing a dark-colored sedan at the scene," Oldham County Police said in a press release.

On Saturday, Jan. 28, police responded after a 22-year-old man went to the Baptist Health La Grange Hospital's emergency room with a gunshot wound to the upper leg.

Officers determined the shooting took place on Marilyn Court in the Lakewood Valley neighborhood when someone in a dark colored sedan fired several shots from the vehicle at the victim and another bystander, the release said.

The next night, officers responded to a shooting on Crossbrook Drive in Pewee Valley. 

Police found a 15-year-old had been shot twice in the lower back. Witnesses told police they saw a dark-colored sedan leaving the area immediately after hearing several gunshots.
