Officials said 29-year-old Eric Raymont Deshields turned himself in to police later that afternoon and now faces a murder charge.

Louisville Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell told the TV station that police were nearby the business park when the shooting occurred.

Mitchell added, “Anytime we have officers close to any situation, it’s always going to be to our advantage, and maybe one of the reasons why it came to a quick resolution in that situation. But oftentimes, our officers are not right there. Most crime is not taken place right in front of us. So every now and then when it happens, we’re always elated when our officers are right there to get aid to the person who may be hurt or the situation can come to a quick solution that way.”
