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.

Radcliff Police Department Chief Jeff Cross said two people were flown to University Hospital in Louisville with what he believed to be non-life threatening injuries. One person was struck in the abdomen and another was graze by a bullet in the head.

Another person managed to drive himself to the parking lot of Hardin Memorial Hospital. Cross said that person receiv­ed an injury to a lower leg, which also is considered non-life threatening.

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.

Cross said it appears an altercation inside the lounge may have led to the shooting. He said it was his understanding through a preliminary investigation none of those injured are from Hardin County. 

RPD is seeking at least one suspect in the shooting.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call 270-351-TIPS. All calls to the tipline are anonymous.

Kentucky State Police is assisting in the investigation.
