5 shot, 3 dead, in west Louisville neighborhood


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Two shootings in a western Louisville neighborhood have left three people dead and police say two more have been hospitalized.

An AP reporter on the scene saw three bodies Thursday afternoon.

Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell said two bodies were found at a house where four people had been shot.

As police investigated, onlookers and reporters dove for cover when several shots rang out. Shortly after, a sheet was placed over a third body on the sidewalk and two people were placed in handcuffs.

Mitchell said two others who were wounded have been taken to University of Louisville Hospital, where one was in critical condition.

The victims' identities haven't been released, and police didn't release any information about what may have happened.
