Louisville Metro Police said they believe Brandon Shackleford, 24, of Louisville was killed in Fern Creek early Monday morning and then driven to Cox Park where his body was left inside a vehicle. Investigators said Mills tried to set the car on fire before he fled the park on foot.
Police are trying to pinpoint the exact location of the shooting, but they believe it happened in or near the 8500 block of Beulah Church Road in Fern Creek as the car was in motion. People in the area reported gunshots and a possible robbery just before 1 a.m. Monday.
Investigators said Shackleford and the driver, Dewayne Hill, had let Mills into the car in Fern Creek and a dispute followed. According to police, Mills shot Shackleford and then fired on Hill as Hill jumped out of the car and ran. Hill was not injured.
Police said they were not looking for other suspects in the case, but they do want witnesses at the park to come forward.
Investigators believe the gun used in the killing may be in the Ohio River, which they were considering searching again on Tuesday.
Anyone with information about the crime should call the anonymous LMPD tip line at 502-574-LMPD (5673).
