LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41)---Police cars packed the emergency room entrance, just in case anything were to happen.
After multiple shootings in Louisville left three people dead, ambulances began arriving to University Hospital with several other shooting victims.
Family and friends gathered by the emergency room entrance, waiting for information.
"We haven't got all the details yet. We just know he was shot in the leg," says one family friend.
The family friend didn't want her name released or to be shown on camera, because she worried about the consequences for doing so.
She was at the hospital to support a friend, who had a family member who was injured in the shootings.
"One of them was her son, and they're holding up pretty good. Two of them were her nephews. They got killed," the woman says.
In the meantime, officers began arriving at University Hospital, which was under heightened security.
Multiple people and employees entering and leaving the hospital told WDRB that some doors were locked and security was standing at certain doors.
"Checking everybody that goes in," the family friend says.
Hospital officials say, however, the hospital wasn't officially on lockdown, and there were ways to enter and leave the hospital.
As for family and friends of one of the men who was taken to University Hospital, they're hoping to get a message out to stop the violence.
"The family is asking for prayers and everybody to stay together and stop all this shooting," she says.
