Two killed in workplace shooting at LG&E facility identified

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A workplace shooting at the LG&E building at 4664 Jennings Lane Tuesday afternoon has left two people dead. According to LMPD Police Chief Robert White, an employee shot his supervisor and then turned the gun on himself. White says said both men were working today and that they worked in the same office.

Tuesday night, Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Jack Arnold released the names of the workers involved in the workplace shooting. Arnold says 52-year-old Jermey "Billy" Davis shot and killed 53-year-old Andre Johnson.

"We're a family of employees we really are. Everyone knows everyone that works in these areas, and they do a lot of things together outside the office so this is a terrible tragedy," LG&E's Chip Keeling said.

The center in southeast Louisville is used to dispatch crews for work at substations and some gas operations.

LG&E has a policy against bringing any kind of weapon to work. Police say they have the gun that was used in today's shooting.
