LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say after four people were shot at 32nd St. and Virginia Ave., a car that was taking one of the shooting victims to the hospital was involved in a wreck.

According to LMPD spokeswoman Carey Klain, the incident occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. at that location.

Klain said a shooting victim and three other people piled into a Chrysler and tried to drive to the hospital. The Chrysler ran a red light at the corner of Brook St. and Gray St., according to Klain, crashing into a Nissan. The person in the other vehicle received non-life-threatening injuries, according to Klain.

Police say the Nissan kept going to the emergency room at Norton Hospital and dropped the shooting victim off.  The three other people who had been in the Chrysler, according to Klain, tried to get inside a locked vehicle just outside the emergency room, but police stopped them.

The shooting victim and the accident victim were both taken to University Hospital. 

Klain said the three other individuals who were in the vehicle with the shooting victim are being questioned, but have not been arrested at this time.

The three other shooting victims, police say, were also involved in the initial shooting scene.  Officers are still trying to find out what role they played in the incident.  So far, no one has been arrested, but the investigation continues.
