LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing multiple charges after police say he tried to kill a man last month.

According to an arrest warrant, it happened on Dec. 19. That's when police say 19-year-old Kyle McCormick got into a fight with another man near the corner of St. Xavier Street and N. 26th St. During that argument, police say McCormick told the man he was going to kill him.

A short time later, police say McCormick's gun was brought to him and he fired multiple shots at the victim.

He missed, but according to police, a bullet struck a home on N. 26th Street, going through a second story window and traveling through two walls before lodging in a third wall.

Two adults and a 2-month-old were in the home at the time. One of those residents called police.

A warrant was issued for McCormick's arrest, and he was taken into custody on Saturday, Jan. 4, according to court documents.

Police say McCormick faces three counts of wanton endangerment and one count of attempted murder.
