Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- A west Louisville neighborhood erupted in gunfire in mid-May, and a University of Louisville is leading a committee to look for solutions to the violence.
Three people died and three others were seriously hurt in two related shootings near 32nd and Kentucky streets.
Since then, Mayor Greg Fischer appointed University of Louisville College of Arts & Sciences Dean, Dr. J. Blaine Hudson, to lead a civic group charged with detailing short and long term solutions to the west end violence.
Dr. Hudson says what's so alarming about the events two weeks ago is the fact there was a second shooting at the crime scene. He says a crisis response team is need to help victims better cope with their emotions.
The team of professional would be, on call 24 hours a day, and would work to diffuse situations while police conduct their investigation.
Among the first goals of the committee will be to develop an inventory of all programs and charities that operate and provide services to youth and young adults in West Louisville to determine what is already being done. After discussion with community leaders it was determined that no comprehensive inventory of programs existed.
All groups operating these activities are being asked to provide information about their program by completing a survey that is on the city's webpage, www.louisvilleky.gov
The deadline to submit information to the inventory is June 15th.
