LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man says he is not guilty of shooting two people and killing one of them during an alleged drug deal.

Quennel Young was out on parole on a manslaughter conviction when police say he shot two people. Court records show he has also been convicted of assault: domestic violence.

Young, 25, is now charged with one count of murder and one count of attempted murder. Police say he shot two people Aug. 5 on South 3rd Street, near Tenny Avenue. 

Police say Young was taking part in a drug deal with 19-year-old Zackery Napper, and a second person.

That's when Young allegedly shot Napper in the chest and the other victim in the face. Young then allegedly drove off and ran over Napper with his car.

Napper later died, and his family is left heartbroken. 

"He didn't deserve it," said Andrea Napper, one of Zackery's relatives. "He didn't do anything to deserve that. And I just don't understand why they would do that to him."

Because of Young's criminal past, his bond was increased to $250,000, and he's not allowed to contact the surviving victim or any of the victim's family members.
