LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Three people have been charged in connection with a shooting early Monday that left two people wounded.
Around 1:40 a.m. June 18, Louisville Metro police were called to the area of 41st Street and Elliott Ave. in the Shawnee neighborhood where they found two people suffering from gunshot wounds.
Around that same time, an LMPD officer on a traffic stop on S. 42nd Street heard multiple gunshots nearby. As the officer headed east on River Park Drive, a black Chevy Impala was spotted going north on Cecil Ave. The officer pulled it over.
The officer saw a woman in the front passenger seat reaching in her waistband and saw multiple spent shell casings on the back seats. During a patdown search of the woman - Janesha L. Kinslow-Stewart, 19, of Louisville - officers found a .40 caliber Glock 27 pistol in her waistband. Kinslow-Stewart and the two others in the car - Sevor H. Blackburn, 19, and Kendrick Andre Palmer, 21, both of Louisville - were detained by officers.
