Within 24 hours, four people were murdered this past weekend in Louisville.

Near the intersection of Dixie Highway and Hill Street, Aaron Combs and Julie Clemons were found dead at 4:30 AM Saturday morning with gun shot wounds. There is still no suspect in this case. Police say that is difficult to find witnesses because of the time at which the murder occurred.

Approximately twelve hours later, three teenagers were shot on Adrienne Way in Shively. Witnesses believed that they had heard fireworks coming from an abandoned house, but the sounds were actually gun shots. The victims were 15-19 years old. The shooting left one dead and the other two in critical condition at University Hospital. There have been no arrests in this case.

Again, about twelve hours later, police found Martel Hall dead from a gunshot wound in his front yard on Powell Avenue. No arrests have been made in this case either.

This weekend added four more to the already high number of murders in Louisville for the year. leaving the total now at 14.
