Louisville Argument Probably Self-Defense

Louisville, Kentucky

From October 9, 2009 WLKY:
A Louisville man was shot and killed overnight. Police said the shooter may have pulled the trigger in self defense.

Alexander Harris, 24, was found shot to death in the front yard of a home on Sunset Avenue just after 1 a.m. Friday, but police aren't saying why he came to the home and just what prompted his acquaintance to fire the deadly shots.

Police said Harris came to the front porch and got into an argument with one of the four people inside."Shots were fired at that time," said Lt. Barry Wilkerson of Metro Police. "Some rounds entered the home and the others struck the victim, fatally wounding him."

Police said Harris came to the house with a gun but they won't say if he actually fired the weapon. The shooter and the victim were acquaintances and neither actually lived at the residence.

Detectives said they didn't take the shooter into custody because they didn't feel they had enough probable cause to make an arrest.

"We will further take the information we have and further testing of the evidence to the commonwealth attorney's office and have them make a determination on whether charges should be placed or not," Wilkerson said.
