LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Police say a shooting in which two people were killed and five injured occurred in a Kentucky park near a youth football game, but was not connected to it.
Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman Lt. Emily McKinley said Friday that it appears the shooting took place after a dispute between people who had gathered at Shawnee Park but weren’t there to watch the game.
Police say officers responded to a call of multiple shootings about 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the riverfront park. Police say the injuries among those taken to University Hospital were not considered life-threatening.
Authorities have not release the names of those killed or injured.
McKinley said the investigation is active and detectives are asking anyone with information to come forward.
No arrests have been made.
