A postal worker is among two people injured in a South Louisville shooting Wednesday, Dwight Mitchell, a spokesperson for the Louisville Metro Police Department, said.
LMPD’s Third Division officers responded to a shooting in the 10300 block of Dixie Highway at around 1:30 p.m. Officers were advised that several gunshots were fired in the parking lot, and a short time later one victim was found to have been transported by private means to Southwest Hospital
That victim, a United States Postal Service postal worker, said she sustained minor injuries from debris as a result of the shooting.
“Our office is working with the Louisville Metro Police Department on this investigation,” Heriberto “Ed” Trejo, a representative for the Postal Service, said. “I can confirm that earlier this afternoon a postal letter carrier sustained minor injuries as a result of the incident at the 10300 block of Dixie Highway today. U.S. Postal Inspectors along with local law enforcement responded to the scene.”
