LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Four people were shot during an incident in west Louisville on Tuesday. Police said one of the victims was involved in a car crash as a driver rushed him to a downtown hospital.
According to Louisville Metro police, officers received a report of shots fired and a possible shooting in the 1100 block of 32nd Street near Virginia just before 1:30 p.m. A vehicle description was released regarding a gray Chrysler that left the scene.
Police said the driver of the Chrysler was northbound on Brook Street headed to Norton Hospital when he ran a red light, causing a collision with a Nissan that was westbound on Gray Street. The 24-year-old woman driving the Nissan was transported to University of Louisville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said a man was driving the Chrysler and that he was carrying three passengers, one of whom had suffered a gunshot wound. The car left the scene of the crash and continued to Norton Hospital where the injured man was left in the entryway to the emergency room.
According to police, the three uninjured men left the hospital on foot and tried unsuccessfully to gain entry to a locked white vehicle just outside the ER. Police stopped the men.
The shooting victim was transferred to University of Louisville Hospital.
Police said three additional gunshot victims arrived a University Hospital a short time later. All of them suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Investigators determined that the three additional victims were involved in the shooting scene in the 1100 block of 32nd Street. Police are investigating to determine what role, if any, each person may have played in the incident.
Arrests are pending, but so far, no formal charges have been filed.
