·1 min read

Two people have been arrested in the case of a Memorial Day 2022 shooting that left two women dead in Bullitt County.

Bradley Joseph Ross, 32, and Savannah Rae McClanahan were arrested in connection with the murders at 3:25 p.m. Wednesday, according to a release from the Bullitt County Sheriff's Office, nine days after the shooting occurred. They were both charged with two counts of murder, robbery in the first degree and tampering with evidence, according to a release from the department.

Ross and McClanahan will be kept in the Bullitt County Detention Center, the release said. Deputies initially responded to the 1700 block of Pitts Point Road in Shepherdsville at 8:20 a.m. on May 30, where Katelyn Rayman, who was in her 20s, was dead, according to a release from Col. Marcus Laytham of the BCSO. The second woman, later identified as 27-year-old Louisville resident Kristin Longaker, died on May 31.

Both women had been found on the side of the road by a passerby on Memorial Day, the BSCO release said. Rayman was declared dead at the scene, according to a May 31 update from Laytham, and Longaker died after being taken to University of Louisville Hospital.

Although a suspect has not been identified, the sheriff's office is looking for this 2002 Hyundai Elantra.
