FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Kentucky Community Crisis Response Team has planned a meeting for Monday evening in Frankfort after two deadly shootings took place just days apart.

On Monday, 25-year-old Anthony L. Hendrix Jr., was shot and killed and two others were injured at a private event at East Frankfort Park, police said.

On Wednesday, 24-year-old Coty Brumback and his dog were shot and killed in a parking garage on St. Claire Street, according to Frankfort Police.

The shootings are not believed to be related, police said.

But the shootings may have left several community members in shock, said Kelli Robinson, Deputy Executive Director of the Kentucky Community Crisis Response Board.

"When you have a couple that are back to back, a whole different feeling goes over the community about what's going on," Robinson said.

On Monday, the board will hold a meeting at the Frankfort Plant Board, 151 Flynn Avenue, beginning at 5:30 p.m, for anyone directly or indirectly effected by the recent violence.

"We know at the park, there were a lot of people present," she said, "We don't know how many people were there, but we do know people were there, people witnessed, people saw, heard what was going on and so we want to make sure that those individuals are OK."
