LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Two people have died and another two injured in a shooting in the Newburg neighborhood on Sunday morning.

Officers were sent to the 6200 block of Shepherdsville Road near the Circle K gas station around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday on reports of a shooting, according to LMPD spokesman Aaron Ellis.
