A Wrens man is in custody after entering Jefferson Hospital with a handgun, assaulting an employee and standing off with Louisville police officers Thursday afternoon.
“The assailant attacked a hospital employee in what appears to be an isolated, targeted incident,” a hospital spokesman said. “Local police responded immediately and apprehended the gunman and now have him in custody. The hospital immediately went on lockdown as a matter of safety protocol.”
There was a time when just about everything you owned was made by hand, close by, probably by someone you knew. The Jefferson County Historical Society celebrated that era this past weekend by hosting its first Heritage Day event in downtown Louisville. Demonstrators ground corn into flour, taught Creek Indian cane weaving, blacksmithing, pottery, crocheting, butter making and spoon carving to interested residents.
