Louisville Police Try New Plan To Stop Murders
Louisville, KY – Tuesday night is the night Louisville Metro police will begin a new offensive aimed at stopping the rash of homicides in the city.
But in the meanwhile, there's been another murder.
Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell says the 60th homicide of the year occurred in the 2nd police division.
That';s one of the three divisions targeted for police officers to work overtime and go door to door to get a handle on where violence may likely occur.
At 1:30 Tuesday morning someone shot into an SUV containing several men, killing one of the passengers. The identity of the victim has not yet been released. Mitchell says that 29 of the city's 60 homicides are unsolved.
There were 51 murders during all of last year.
