Two people were shot, one of them was killed, in downtown Louisville on June 27, according to US Police. The incident happend at around 9 p.m. (local time) in Jefferson Square Park. Forces of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department performed life-saving measures on a male victim who eventually died.
Shortly thereafter, another person shot at the Hall of Justice. The injured person was taken to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Officers cleared the park completely and have secured the entire area so homicide detectives can conduct their investigation,” LMPD spokesman Lamont Washington reported. “Detectives are trying to gather as much information as possible in order to identify all who were involved in the incident.”
Jefferson Square Park has been the scene of BLM protests over the police shooting of Breonna Taylor for weeks. Thus, it has been one of the centers of violence in the city.
