LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Homicide detectives are investigating after a double shooting in the Russell neighborhood left one person dead and another person in the hospital.
According to LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley, it happened just before 12:30 p.m. at the intersection of 26th and Cedar Streets, near Green Alley. That's where police found the victims - a man and a woman.
"When the officers got here on scene, they did find two people that had been shot," Smiley said. "One of them was an adult female, the other was an adult male."
Smiley says the man was pronounced dead at the scene, and the woman was taken to University Hospital in "stable" condition.
