Monday, April 10th, was a traumatic day for the city of Louisville, Kentucky, as two shootings occurred just blocks apart. Only a few hours after the deadly attack happened at Old National Bank yesterday, another shooting occurred at a community college in the same city.
At 11:30 am, a gunman(s) started shooting outside the Jefferson Community at the Technical Campus. One male was killed, pronounced dead at the scene, and another person, a female, was injured and taken to the nearby campus hospital. No additional details about the victims have been released yet, nor whether the wounded victim sustained critical injuries or not. Names and ages have also not been announced to the public, but it has been said that the two victims were both adults.
Although the shooting at the college took place just over a mile from the shooting at the bank, authorities say these two incidents seem to be unrelated.
Multiple suspects are thought to be on the loose after the shooting. They were initially on foot before running to a car and driving off prior to the police’s arrival. Officers searched the campus but found no threats or any other additional victims. Detectives were canvassing the area for more information, as police urged anyone who has any details about the shooting to come forward.
The Jefferson Community College released a statement on Twitter, shutting down campus at noon yesterday. The suspects are still at large and police deem this an ongoing investigation.
