Police: ongoing dispute preceded deadly workplace shooting

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - One day after a man gunned down his supervisor before taking his own life at an LG&E dispatch facility in southeastern Louisville, investigators are trying to determine what may have led to the shooting.

According to police and the coroner's office, 52-year-old Jermey "Billy" Davis shot and killed his supervisor, 53-year-old Andre Johnson, just after 1:30 p.m. on July 5.

A police source tells WAVE 3 the shooting happened after an ongoing dispute dating back more than a year. 

Both men were longtime employees of LG&E, and their co-workers are still in shock. 

"We're a family of employees, we really are," said LG&E spokesman Chip Keeling. "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."

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

Police recovered the gun used in the shooting. LG&E has a policy against employees carrying weapons of any kind while at work.

We'll bring you the latest information as soon as it becomes available.
