LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - New images show bullet holes fired at police early Wednesday morning during reports of looting in Louisville.

LMPD Interim Chief Robert Schroeder said an LMPD SWAT armored truck was struck. Exclusive photos obtained by WAVE 3 News Troubleshooters show at least four rounds struck the vehicle.

The officers inside the truck were not injured.

The shooting happened at the intersection of 26th Street and Broadway while officers were trying to stop the looting of an ATM.
