LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - A man and a woman found at separate locations are being treated for gunshot wounds that Louisville Metro police say they sustained while they were together.

According to Louisville Metro police, officers were called to the 2900 block of Fern Valley Road at the Days Inn around 4 a.m. and found a woman with a gunshot wound.

About 15 minutes later, officers were called about a man who had been shot multiple times in the 4300 block of Whitmore Avenue, near the intersection of Taylor Blvd. and Bluegrass Ave.

Further investigation revealed the man and woman were in an argument that began inside a room at the Days Inn, according to LMPD spokeswoman Alicia Smiley.

The two walked out onto the balcony and both fired weapons at each other, according to police. The man and the woman were hit multiple times.

Police said the woman was taken to University Hospital alert and conscious. The woman is expected to survive her injuries.

The man was able to drive himself to a home in the 4300 block of Whitmore Avenue, where he was located by officers. He was then taken to University Hospital with non-serious injuries.

The investigation is being handled by LMPD’s Domestic Violence Unit, where officials believe all parties have been accounted for.
