2 shot at Louisville motorcycle club

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) -  The Shawnee neighborhood started Easter morning with gunfire.

LMPD said they were called to the Outcast Motorcycle Club at 43rd and West Market Street around 3 a.m. Sunday.

Officers arrived to find a black man and woman had been shot.

Dwight Mitchell, an LMPD Spokesperson, confirmed that both were taken to University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Nan Palmer lives a couple houses away.

“Not a way you want to be woken up any morning but especially Easter morning when you're thinking about being with family,” Palmer said. “They may not be targeting us or somebody else but you never know when a stray bullet is going to get somebody."

The intersection isn’t a stranger to violence. Records show there were two homicides there in 2009, with another in 2010 and a fourth in 2011.

Palmer’s husband Donovan said the violence has gotten out of control lately.

“There's a lot of hardworking good people down here that kind of seems to be held hostage by people who just don't know how to act,” Donovan Palmer said. "Too many good people down here, too many kids are in danger down here because of the actions of a few."

The LMPD Major Crimes Unit is investigating.

So far, police said there are no suspects.
