LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police are investigating after an elderly couple was shot Tuesday.

According to Alicia Smiley, a spokeswoman for LMPD, officers were called to Exeter Avenue, near Newburg Road and Produce Road, shortly before noon after someone reported that two people had been shot.

Smiley says the LMPD Domestic Violence Unit is investigating. It happened shortly before noon at a residence in the 4500 block of Exeter. That's where police say a 73-year-old woman sustained a gunshot wound to her upper torso, while her husband, who is 80, also sustained a gunshot wound to the upper torso.

According to Smiley, both victims were taken to University Hospital with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.

Police are still looking for suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD (502-574-5873).
