LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville Metro Police are trying to determine the circumstances surrounding a shooting after a woman arrived at a hospital with gunshot wounds.
According to LMPD, the 22-year-old victim arrived at the Suburban Hospital emergency room around 8:30 a.m. Monday. She was taken by EMS to University Hospital for treatment of wounds that are being called life-threatening.
St. Matthews Police were initially called to the hospital about the shooting, but contacted LMPD after it was determined the shooting took place in the Metro police jurisdiction.
Metro police are trying to determine if the woman was shot at a home in the 10100 block of Trotter Court, off Beulah Church Road. They do say the home is somehow involved. Blood can be seen in the driveway and on the front porch of the home that was surrounded by police tape on Monday morning.
It is the same home where police arrested 26 year-old Matthew Young back in 2006 after they say he threatened to shoot his girlfriend's mother, then shot at the girlfriend, who jumped from the second story window to escape.
Neighbors who live on the street say they didn't hear anything on Monday morning and were surprised by the officers and police tape, but were not surprised to see them at the home at the end of the court. They say the neighborhood is a good one, where everyone is friends and hangs out, except for the people who live in the home where police are now focusing their investigation.
The name of the wounded woman has not been released.
