LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE 3)– Two people are dead after a shooting in the Bashford Manor neighborhood of Louisville.

It happened just after 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon in the 2100 block of Goldsmith Lane.

Police say they found a man and woman inside the home with apparent gunshot wounds.

First responders declared both dead at the scene.

According to WAVE 3 News, dozens of family members showed up on the scene. They claimed the incident was the result of an abusive relationship coming to an end.

The family of the woman told WAVE she recently broke up with the man after a long abusive relationship. About a week ago, family members finally got her ex out of the house, only to have him break back in, cut the alarm system, and wait for the woman to get home.

They said she was on the phone with her mother when he put the gun to her head.

Police say they aren’t looking for additional suspects at this time.

The Homicide Unit is investigating.
