LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man was shot and killed in a confrontation with LMPD officers in Pleasure Ridge Park on Sunday night.

A call came in at 7:39 p.m. of a drunk and disorderly man in his 40s in the 4600 block of Crawford Avenue, Police Chief Steve Conrad said at a press conference late Sunday night.

Police responded and a conflict ensued between the victim and officers. Officers fired shots during the incident. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

"At this point our Public Integrity Unit is handling the investigation," Conrad said. "As is the normal course of events, these officers will be placed on administrative re-assignment. Their police powers will be suspended pending the outcome of the investigation."
