LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A teenager was shot and killed early Saturday morning in Shively.
It happened just after midnight in the 4100 block of Cane Run Road, MetroSafe confirmed. That’s near the I-264 interchange.
Emergency crews found a teen with multiple gunshot wounds at the scene when they arrived.
Witnesses said there was a March Madness Party at an event space next to the liquor store where the shooting happened. Around 40 to 50 teens between the ages of 15 and 17 were there.
Police said there was an altercation that moved from inside the party to outside.
Witnesses said the party had already ended well before the fight broke out. There were teens still waiting for their rides outside.
The alleged shooter, also a teenager, was waiting with friends outside of the party in a red pickup truck, according to witnesses.
They claim he confronted the victim, another teenager, in the liquor store’s drive-thru and stole his cell phone.
The victim began to chase the suspect, they fought and a gun was drawn, witnesses said.
Police said after the victim was shot, he tried to get away, but collapsed a short distance from where things started.
Witnesses claimed something different. They said the victim was loaded into a car, and dropped off in the next parking lot over.
He died at the scene.
Security footage from across the street showed the moment of panic--witnesses scattered as shots rang out.
The Louisville Metro Police Department’s Homicide Unit was called to the scene, but Shively Police are handling the investigation.
Police do not have any suspects. No one has been arrested.
