Neighbors capture Shepherdsville Police shooting on cell phone video

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Shepherdsville Police say one of their officers shot a man Friday. 

It happened near Nancy Drive, which is off Blue Lick Road in Shepherdsville and some witnesses recorded the shooting with their cell phones.

Christopher Lindsey, 30, was rushed to University Hospital, police say he's in serious but stable condition. 

Police have released few details about what led up to the shooting but in video recorded by a neighbor, you can hear police yelling, focusing their attention on a man standing in the field. 

Witnesses say Lindsey had a gun in his hand and was waving it around. 

Then gunshots. 

Police say Lindsey was shot by an officer and rushed to University Hospital by ambulance.
 
Brandon Thomas says he was visiting a friend at one of the homes along Nancy Drive and watched everything unfold.

He told WDRB's Danielle Lama it started when Lindsey drove by him and into the grass. 

"So he jumped out of his car and he had a pistol in his hand and he was talking on the phone," Thomas said.

Thomas says police arrived soon after. 

Officials told us it was just before 4:30 p.m. when they got the call to respond. 

"I like ducked behind my car, because I didn't know what was going on and as soon as he turned him back toward me, I jetted back to the garage and the cops came around the corner and were like 'Go back inside, Go back inside," Thomas said.

He said after a few minutes inside, he decided to go back out. Like other witnesses, he also recorded what happened next on his cell phone, this time from a different angle. 

"The guy's on the phone again, he's got the pistol up to his head and all of a sudden like 20 minutes in, he throws his phone down on the ground and he starts waving his gun," Thomas said.

The violent scene outside their door has left some shaken. 

"This neighborhood is full of wonderful kids, we're all a family and that's bothering a lot of our neighbors because of what happened here today, because of our young ones, even our older ones are family, so it's terrifying to be honest," another neighbor, Angela Vanover, said.

Lindsey is charged with six counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer.
