From the Courier-Journal.com:

A robbery suspect was shot and killed by Louisville Metro Police in Portland on Tuesday after the man robbed a store nearby, Chief Steve Conrad said.

The department was notified of a robbery of a Metro PCS in the 2600 block of W. Market Street around noon and a description of the suspect was sent out to authorities, Conrad said. First Division officers then located a man matching the description in the 500 block of N. Market Street.

The officers exchanged fire with the suspect, Conrad said, and the suspect was struck. He was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital, where he later died.

The department’s public integrity unit is investigating and the officers have been placed on administrative reassignment during the investigation, Conrad said.

A press conference is scheduled for Wednesday, where police are expected to identify the officers and show available body camera footage from the incident.

This is one of several incidents where an LMPD officer has shot at a suspect in the past couple of months — described as “more than normal” by Conrad.

James Clarkson, the owner of the residential building near where the suspect was shot, said police told him the incident began with an attempted robbery.

“The police station is just a couple blocks away from here,” Clarkson said. “It’s surprising.”

Clarkson said his tenants estimated they heard between 15 and 20 shots. Damage was done to the apartment building he owns, but he is staying optimistic.

“Buildings can be replaced. People can’t,” Clarkson said. “I’m glad everyone inside was OK. It’s a new era down here in Portland, things are changing.”

Victoria Logsdon, who lives in a neighboring building, said she was taking a nap when she was woken up by the sound of gunfire in the streets.

She grabbed her 6-month-old baby and her boyfriend told her to get down. The shooting stopped and sirens immediately followed, she said.

Police officers later showed up to tell her everything would be OK.

“It scared me a whole lot,” Logsdon said. “My boyfriend told me constantly that Portland’s not what it used to be. I never thought there was anything wrong. I used to think it was like anywhere else, until now.”

Logsdon said that Clarkson’s building had a lot of damage, including two doors completely shattered by bullets and a window busted.
