LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a gunman is still on the run after shooting two men at a local business.
The plant manager at Cardinal Kitchens refused to comment, but employees were more vocal about the day they say they'll never forget. They say they're still shaken up after a scary day on the job.
"A couple people got shot. I heard gunshots and ran,” said Jeremy Vincent, one of several employees who feared for their lives Monday afternoon.
He says he took cover in the front office after shots rang out at his new job, Cardinal Kitchens.
"It was kind of freaky. I was kind of scared,” said Vincent. “I feel bad for them. I don't think nobody deserves to get shot.”
Police said it started as an altercation between several employees at Cardinal Kitchen but the fight quickly escalated.
One of the workers shot two others and then took off.
"Two have been injured. One was transported to university hospital. The other victim transported himself," said LMPD Sgt. Phil Russell.
One of the victims is in critical condition. The other is stable.
The person responsible, however, is still at large.
"There is a suspect who is outstanding so we are continuing to follow up on leads and search for him," said Sgt. Russell.
Natasha Lawson lives across the street from the counter top business.
This is what she says she saw when she came home from work
“Police everywhere. I seen at least two or three SWAT teams,” said Lawson.
“The only person I know who works over there is just an acquaintance on the bus. It seemed like a pretty nice place the way he talked about it. I wouldn't have thought of anyone being shot over there. It shocked me,” Lawson explained.
As residents and employees try to cope with what happened, many just want the gun violence to end.
“I have a big fear that we're going to see more of this,” said Lawson.
Police said both victims are expected to survive.
