LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - No arrests have been made after a teenager died from an overnight shooting in Louisville’s East End.

Louisville Metro police officers were called on Tuesday around 1:45 a.m. to the 11400 block of Tazwell Drive.

A nearby resident couldn’t believe what they heard.

“I heard gunshots, about three shots,” the resident said. “Then I heard about four or five more loud shots got closer.”

Police tape scattered throughout multiple apartment complexes shows the magnitude of the scene.
