LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Two separate but related shooting incidents in Louisville's west end on Thursday left six people shot and three of them dead.

In the first incident at 1010 South 32nd Street, two people were killed, a third person suffered life-threatening injuries and a fourth person was left with injuries that were described as non-life-threatening.

The Jefferson County Deputy Coroner identified the deceased as Tyson Mimms, 24, and Craig Bland Jr., 22.

Police said one of the shooting survivors drove to 26th Street and Elliott Avenue where police initially thought that person had been shot.  

A short time later, a woman on her way to the shooting scene got into an argument with another woman at 32nd Street and Garland Avenue. The coroner said Makeba Lee, 24, was shot and killed by the second woman who was then shot by an LMPD police officer. That woman survived the shooting and was transported to University of Louisville Hospital. Her condition is not known.

Five Jefferson County Public elementary schools were on heightened security because of the shootings. They included Engelhard, Byck, Brandeis, Maupin and Carter. A spokesperson said the schools were not on lockdown. They were on a high security level as a precaution.

About 40 students who live in the area of 24th, 25th and 26th Streets and Elliott Avenue, where a bus stop is located, were taken to Central High School.

All affected students called their parents from Central High School where they could be picked up. Any parents unable to pick up their children could have their children delivered home when the area was cleared.

Students living a few block away in the area of 32nd Street and Garland were also being transported to Central High School after the officer-involved shooting.

Lauren Roberts with JCPS announced that elementary schools were dismissing normally. Any students who walk home and live in the affected areas were being held at their schools while their parents were contacted.

In addition, University of Louisville Hospital was placed on lockdown as a precaution since several of the shooting victims were transported there. More information on that part of the story can be found by clicking here.
