LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - In the early hours of the Fourth of July, two men were injured in a shooting at an apartment building in east Louisville.
It happened around 1:45 a.m. Thursday, on Tazwell Drive, a Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman confirmed. That’s off Murphy Lane near Westport Road, just outside of the Gene Snyder.
