LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Homicide detectives are investigating after a double shooting overnight that left one man dead and a woman hospitalized. It happened just before 3 a.m. in the Newburg neighborhood.

Officers arriving at the scene of the shooting in the 4800 block of Brenda Drive found a man and woman with gunshot wounds.

Natshun Bright, 33, was pronounced dead at the scene with a gunshot wound to his right temple. The female, who has not yet been identified, was taken to University Hospital. No word yet on her condition.

Details are still sketchy, and police couldn't say whether it was an attempted murder-suicide.

"It's still very early, we don't know that definitively at this point," said LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell. "The female was taken to University Hospital. We do not know her condition at this point."
