LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A shooting at an apartment complex in St. Matthews has left a man dead and a woman injured.

The shooting happened at the Jamestown Apartments, located in the 800 block of Breckenridge Lane, around 11:15 p.m. Sunday.

“There were 4-5 gunshots,” a man who lives at Jamestown Apartments said. “Ninety seconds later, 15 cop cars two ambulances pull up and you hear screaming and a lot of stuff going on.”

St. Matthews officers found the shooting victims.

“They discovered a male and female both with multiple gunshot wounds,” Major Eddie Jones, assistant chief of the St. Matthews police said. “Our officers attempted to render aid to the the male.”
