SHIVELY, KY (WAVE) - Shively police say the man who died after being shot on Derby Day and crashing his truck into the corner of a building was the result of an altercation with someone he knew.

The shooting happened around 1:35 p.m. May 6 at a home in the 1700 block of Noble Place where the victim, Michael Bosse, 47, lived. Police believe other people lived in the home as well.

"It's my understanding it's been subdivided into several different apartments," Shively Police Sgt. Josh Myers said.

Police say Bosse was shot inside the home by another occupant of the home. They believe he was trying to get away with his 6-year-old daughter and sped off in his pickup truck. After turning onto Dixie Highway, Bosse lost consciousness. His truck hit the corner of a former pizza restaurant at 7th Street Road and Leroy Avenue.

Jewell Skaggs who lives across the street from Bosse heard the crash from her home.

"We're sitting in the house we heard a loud boom," Skaggs said.

Bosse was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. His daughter was taken to Norton Children's Hospital to be checked out and was released.

Skaggs doesn't know why the shooting happened but, she does know one thing about Bosse.

"He did love that little girl, he was a good dad," Skaggs said. "He tried to take care of her of her the best he could."

Police and neighbors are grateful the child wasn't hurt but, they fear what she may have seen.

"Being that close to it, I don't know what all if anything she saw," Sgt. Myers said. "But, obviously that's going to probably leave some lasting marks."

Shively Police said they have not arrested the suspect yet and they aren't naming the person at this time.  The shooting is being called an isolated incident.
