UPDATE: Police charge man in connection with south Jefferson County fatal shooting
Tracey Brock, 20, was shot and killed in a home on Altsheler Place in southern Jefferson county around 8:30 a.m. Friday.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)-- Louisville Metro Police Homicide detectives have charged Stuart Cox with one count of murder in connection with Friday's homicide on Altsheler Place.
Cox is the boyfriend of the victim, Tracey Brock, 20, who was shot and killed around 8:30 a.m. Friday.
Both Cox and Brock resided at the residence where the shooting occurred. Cox was transported to Louisville Metro Corrections Friday evening.
We're told Brock has a 3-year-old daughter and several siblings, including a twin sister.
"It really hurts, because she was my first friend in this neighborhood since I lived here fourteen years ago," Megan Stanley said.
One neighbor in the area said she was startled by a reckless driver around the same time of the shooting.
"I saw a little silver car come speeding from the house at a high rate of speed, and it turned this corner without stopping. Next thing I saw was the police cars," Joanna Taylor said.
Friends and neighbors tell WDRB that Brock was staying at the home with her boyfriend, Stuart Cox, and his grandparents.
Stanley, a friend of the Brock and Cox, said the young couple was just at her house the night before, but the boyfriend is now nowhere to be found.
"It's hard to know one of my close friends could have did this. And I don't think I could ever look at him the same," Stanley said. "If he can kill somebody right now, what makes anybody think that he won't turn the gun on himself. I couldn't lose a second friend like that."
Cox is now in police custody, but he wasn't obtained easily.
Two Kentucky State Police troopers were on patrol on I-65 at the 58 mile marker when Cox drove by them in a 2000 Nissan sedan.
They troopers attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but Cox failed to pull over. He then led KSP on a high-speed chase through four counties until he lost control at the 40 mile marker near Bowling Green.
Cox spun out of control and wrecked off the side of the highway. He was taken into custody at 8:45 a.m. and then handed over to LMPD.
