RADCLIFF, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities have identified a man who was shot and killed at a Radcliff apartment in a double-shooting Thursday night. 

According to Radcliff Police Chief Jeffrey Cross, that man has been identified as 56-year-old Bernard Williams.

Williams died at the hospital. Police say the surviving victim -- who is expected to be okay -- was able to identify the shooter as 36-year-old Timothy Hargroves Jr.

Hargroves appeared before a judge Friday morning after police arrested him Thursday night. He is charged with one count of murder (domestic violence) and one count of attempted murder.

"Based upon the danger to others, and the flight risk that's involved, and the nature of these charges which could be a capital offense the bond is set at $1 million, cash bond," said Hardin District Judge Kimberly Shumate.

Radcliff Police say that around 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, he knocked on the door of an apartment at Patton Village Apartments along Knox Boulevard in Radcliff and immediately shot the two people inside: Williams and 33-year-old Millareisha Dixon.

Then at around 11 p.m., police say they found Hargroves hiding in the woods near the scene, and took him into custody.

Radcliff Police say witnesses saw him running that way and the Louisville Metro Police Department's K-9s helped track him down.

Investigators believe this was a domestic violence situation. They say Hargroves and Dixon have a child together. She was able to identify him to police.

It’s still unclear what exactly led up to the shooting.

A judge said Hargroves also has 17 other unrelated charges, including DUI, drug trafficking and wanton endangerment. He’s expected to be indicted by a grand jury on the murder and attempted murder charges.
