SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Shepherdsville police have made an arrest stemming from the deadly altercation that happened in the parking lot of the new Arvato warehouse on South Preston Highway.

David Beck, 52, is charged with one count of murder. He was booked into the Bullitt County Detention Center just before 3 p.m. Wednesday.

An arrest report claims the victim, whose name has not been released, exited his car after pulling in front of Beck in the parking lot when Beck accelerated and drove his car into them, hitting them with the front of his Ford sedan.

The victim was taken to UofL Hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Police say Beck remained at the scene and was questioned by police.

Governor Andy Beshear was scheduled to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony at Arvato this morning. The ceremony was canceled due to the police investigation.
