Police following leads in homicide


Putting the pieces to the puzzle together all is part of an investigation and for the first time since early last year, the Radcliff Police Department is in the midst of solving a homicide.

Detectives are working a handful of leads regarding the shooting early Wednesday morning of Lashard Harrison, 25, of Vine Grove, Police Capt. Willie Wells said.

Harrison, a 2012 North Hardin High School graduate, was found dead in a parking lot behind apartments on Pin Oak Court. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Hardin County Coroner’s Office after he was shot multiple times.

Nobody has been arrested in Harrison’s death as of 5 p.m. Thursday.

Police were called at 12:24 a.m. Wednesday after neighbors heard multiple gunshots. When they arrived, Harrison was found.

Wells said police immediately canvassed the area around the shooting scene and interviewed people in the area.

“You just try not to leave any stone unturned,” Wells said.

Police have not publicly identified a motive in the shooting.

A gathering to remember Harrison was held Wednesday night.

He was described by Quon Jenkins, a friend, as someone who would look out for the well being of others.

“That’s my brother,” Jenkins said. “I love him to death.”

Jenkins said Harrison was the father of a daughter and also cared for another child.

Harrison’s shooting death is the first in Radcliff since Nov. 2, 2017, when Timothy Hargroves Jr. shot and Bernard Williams inside Williams’ Patton Village apartment. Hargroves was convicted of murder earlier this year and sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Anyone with any information regarding Wednesday morning’s shooting is asked to contact RPD at 270-351-4479.

“Sometimes it’s the small things that you don’t think may have anything to do with what happened that leads to something,? Wells said. “We’re trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together.”

Well seems the Dope Dealer that killed him was arrested and confessed that it was a drug deal gone bad.


What's all the fuss over a dead Dope Dealer who was killed by some other Dope Dealer



Do you have solid evidence that the victim was a "Dope Dealer" ?

According to the Dope Dealer who shot and killed him it was.



Ok, then, how did you know that "some other Dope Dealer" shot him before the police knew ?
