LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WLKY) - The Louisville Metro Police Department is investigating a deadly shooting at the Tim Faulkner Gallery on Portland Avenue.

The shooting happened before 1:20 a.m. at the art gallery where police say a concert was being held.

The five people who were injured were taken to University Hospital and are expected to survive.

Police estimate that several hundred people were at the concert.

No arrests have been made, according to police.

"Well, obviously, we have no arrests at this point and our detectives and officers are currently canvassing the neighborhood for any potential witnesses and are also looking for any other victims that may have been hit. This was a large scale party with upwards to maybe 200 people or so," LMPD spokesperson Dwight Mitchell said.
