LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - A late-night shooting near a Louisville elementary school is under investigation.

Two people — a man in his 20s and a teenage girl — were shot on Preston Highway in Okolona at a Mexican restaurant near Okolona Elementary School around 11 p.m., LMPD Major Brian Kuriger said. The man died before he could be brought to the hospital; the girl was rushed to UofL Hospital for treatment via EMS.

Other people were also brought to the hospital after the shooting after suffering from panic attacks, Kuriger said.

A witness said the restaurant where the shooting happened is called El Chuletón and that a large crowd was there celebrating Mexican Independence Day.

The man killed has been identified as Ulices Guadarrama, 20, of Louisville. The identity of the girl has not been released.

Call the LMPD Anonymous Tip Line at (502) 574-LMPD to give any information to investigators.
