I-264W back open after shooting investigation

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — All westbound lanes and the left eastbound lane of I-264 West near Bells Lane were blocked for several hours Thursday night while police investigated a shooting.

Louisville Metro Police said they went to investigate the report of a shooting on the interstate around 8:45 p.m. When officers arrived, they found a girl in her mid-teens who had been shot inside a vehicle. She was taken to Norton Children’s Hospital, but is expected to be okay.

All lanes of I-264W were reopened just before 2 a.m. Friday morning. Police have not said if they are looking for any suspects.

Note: A push alert erroneously said I-265 was closed. The story has been updated to make clear it is I-264 West that is closed.
