Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One man died and two women were hurt after a Kentucky man attacked them, armed with a gun and a machete.

Neighbors heard gunshots and people screaming outside a home Thursday morning in the Bronston community in Pulaski County.

Lilburn Holbrook, 50, was found dead, and two women were hospitalized.

Police said Cody Hall, 28, rushed officers and assaulted them before he was arrested.

"He had something black in his right hand ... looked like maybe a chain or something in the left hand," said Melissa Parker, who witnesses the attack. "And he was just walking around in circles like he was irritated."

Hall was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, where police will be on guard until he's taken to jail.

It's not yet known exactly what charges he'll face.
