LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY — Sunday saw a fatal dispute erupt at the Animal Clinic & Hospital on the 2400 block of Dixie Highway, Shively, which ended with a tragic shooting.
Shively spokesman, Jordan Brown, reported a verbal altercation escalating into a physical confrontation while police were en route to the scene, according to WAVE 3.

Despite the immediate response of EMS personnel, Taylor succumbed to his injuries at the University of Louisville Hospital.
