LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The names of the victims killed in a double homicide at the Douglas Park Apartments have been released.
The Jefferson County coroner identified them as 55-year-old Miquel Ricardo and 17-year-old Giovanni Rodriguez.
Police confirmed the victims were 40-year-old Yunior Ricardo Rodriquez’s father and son.
LMPD responded to the apartments Monday morning around 3:50 a.m. on a report of a shooting. Police said Rodriquez was near the front door when they arrived.
Both victims were found shot inside the apartment. They died before being taken to the hospital.
According to an arrest report, Rodriquez admitted to shooting his father and son. He is being charged with two counts of murder, tampering with physical evidence, having a firearm as a convicted felon and defacing a firearm.
WAVE News learned this was not Rodriquez’s first run-in with the law.
