Update 10/2/2017 By EPD Officer Thomas:
Just need to clarify a detail of the shooting incident. The event that was catalyst in the shooting was a party being held at Hub City Lodge #172, and the shooting occurred at this location, not at the Wesley Hilltop House. The listed address for the Hub City Lodge is 1001B Skyline Drive, but the building is actually accessed from Abby Court.
EPD released the following information this afternoon (10/1/17):
“The Elizabethtown Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred earlier this morning. Shortly before 2 AM, police responded to a report of a disturbance with shots fired at a large gathering at the Wesley Hilltop House at 1001 Skyline Drive. There was a single adult male victim at the scene with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the ankle. This victim was transported to University Hospital in Louisville. There were no other reports of injuries. Three unoccupied vehicles in the area were also apparently struck by gunfire. The investigation is still in very preliminary stages. Investigators are still trying to sort out what happened, and have not yet identified a suspect or motivation for the shooting. Police are asking for any witnesses or persons with knowledge of this event to come forward with any information they may have to assist in solving this case. ”
