ATTORNEY: Cardinal Kitchens employees not responsible for shooting

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- January 11 is a day most Cardinal Kitchens employees won't forget.

"It was a terrifying incident, but the last thing we want is for them to arrest the wrong person,” said Steve Romines, attorney for Cardinal Kitchens.

Romines says the business is practicing patience while LMPD detectives look for the person who opened fire that day, injuring two people.

"At this time they don't believe it's any employees or anything related to the workplace environment, but again, we don't know,” Romines told WDRB.

Initial reports mentioned the shooting may have stemmed from a fight at the business earlier that day, but Romines says the incident was likely unrelated.

“We don't have any reason to believe that that has anything to do with it. Both of those individuals were accounted for when the shooting occurred,” he explained.

There were no surveillance cameras at Cardinal Kitchens then, so police are having to look off the property for any video clues.

"Stoplight cameras, different road cameras, TRIMARC cameras, businesses in the area. They're looking for surveillance in all those,” he said.

Since the shooting, the cabinet company has installed new security measures.

"Metal detectors, keyless entry, surveillance video around the property, we've got extra security there. All employees are back to work and feeling, I think, fairly safe,” said Romines.

Romines says the business has more than 100 people who work there and no known disgruntled former employees.

The business has remained open since the shooting.

"They see these things on the news but they don't think it's going to happen to them. I mean, it's a cabinet company,” he added.

Both the employees hurt in the shooting have since recovered and are out of the hospital.

If you have any information about the suspect, you’re asked to call the anonymous tip-line at 574-LMPD.
