A triple shooting over the weekend still is under investigation.
Three men were shot Sunday in an early-morning altercation in the parking lot of Jazz and Jokes Lounge on West Lincoln Trail Boulevard in Radcliff – within about 100 yards of the city’s police station.
It appears an altercation inside the business may have led to the shooting, Radcliff Police Chief Jeff Cross said in an interview Monday. RPD is seeking at least one suspect.
Two people were flown to University Hospital in Louisville with non-life-threatening injuries, police said Sunday. One was struck in the abdomen and another was grazed by a bullet in the head.
Cross said the person shot once in the head “was alert and talking to us at the scene.”
“It was a superficial wound,” Cross said.
A third person managed to drive himself to the parking lot of Hardin Memorial Hospital. Cross said that person received an injury to the lower leg, which also is considered non-life-threatening.
In the Monday follow-up interview, Cross said there were no arrests but he expected to have more information about the shooting sometime after lunch today.
A phone message to Jazz and Jokes Lounge was not returned by 5 p.m. Monday, but the bar announced it would be changing its security measures after the shooting.
“Effective immediately Jazz and Jokes Lounge is Males 30 Females 25yrs of age and over Lounge. No cover charge until the 1st (of) the year. We will be increasing security. After January 1st, 2020, the cover charge will be $10 to offset the increase of security. Per Owners,” read a Sunday evening Facebook post.
The club was open Sunday following the shooting.
“While an isolated incident did happen outside the club last night in the parking lot, this incident is not indicative of the culture of this establishment. We will not let individuals from outside our community destroy it,” read another Facebook post.
Based on a preliminary investigation, Cross said it’s his understanding none of those injured are from Hardin County.
Anyone with any information is encouraged to call 270-351-TIPS. All calls to the tipline are anonymous.
