LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police say he tried to kill his former girlfriend and murdered her
brother. After searching for him for two-and-a-half days informer's tips,
a landlord's help and a canine officer's sharp nose and sharper bite put a
murder suspect in custody.
Normally the 1600 block of South 30th Street is quiet.
"That's why I moved here," said a neighbor, who preferred
not to be identified. But Wednesday, she
sensed trouble, "Just seeing a lot of undercover cars going up and down
the street." The vehicles were a prologue to the capture of Quenton
According to Louisville Metro police Huddleston was wanted for
the murder of Joshua Gordon, 19. Officers said Gordon was killed and his
25-year-old sister, who was Huddleston's former girlfriend, suffered a gunshot
wound to the face during the shooting in the 5200 block of Shepherdsville Road on June 16.
The woman's 3-year-old
son was in the apartment when the shooting happened and was unharmed.
Following the shooting Lt. Sean Jackman, of the Louisville Metro
Police VIPER unit said officers began
interviewing all of members of Huddleston's
extensive family. But the interviews yielded few clues as to where
Huddleston might be. But others leads and a friend of a family member,
eventually led them to 1600 block of South 30th Street.
"He threatened to go to his brother's house, and get his gun to go
back to shoot you, your mother, little siblings and son. Is that accurate?"
Family Court Judge Patricia Walker Fitzgerald asked at the time.
"The accurate terminology was ‘me and my family,'" the
estranged girlfriend answered.
"Her safety, her life was definitely in danger, had we not
gotten him and arrested him soon," Lt. Jackman said.
Joshua Gordon's mother, has established a fund to help pay for a
memorial. "All I can say is ‘thank you Lord' my son's killer and my
daughter's shooter has been caught," Leisa Best-Gordon posted on her
Facebook account Thursday morning.
Huddleston was checked over at University of Louisville Hospital
before he was booked Louisville Metro Corrections. He is charged with murder,
attempted murder, burglary, stalking, two counts of violating an EPO/DVO,
wanton endangerment and probation violation.
