Man stabbed to death near busy Westport Plaza

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - LMPD officers are investigating a deadly stabbing near Westport Plaza on Saturday night.

WAVE 3 News confirmed that a man was found stabbed and killed in the 9400 block of Westport Road, just across from the busy plaza, at about 6:15 p.m.

That's near Zachary Taylor Elementary School in the Rolling Hills neighborhood.

WAVE 3 News' Kaitlin Rust reported from a chaotic scene Saturday night that access to the apartment complex was cut off for a while as officers investigated a large crime scene. Making their job difficult was the growing crowd of onlookers, some of whom knew the victim, who has not been identified.

LMPD’s Homicide Unit is investigating.

Information about suspects or motives was not known.

Originally, this was reported as a shooting. The LMPD later determined that the victim had been stabbed, not shot, the police said in a release on Sunday night.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call 574-LMPD.
