Louisville Metro Police are responding to an alleged assault that occurred around 1:30pm near our Payne Street facility. Details are limited for now, but the incident is currently being investigated. Police have informed us that they do not yet have a suspect in custody and that there’s no further information they can give at this time.
We will hold classes and the performance of YPF this evening as scheduled. The building has been locked down since the event, and we’ll continue to keep the building secure throughout classes. If you need admittance we’ll have someone in the lobby to let you in.
Though most incidents like this are targeted, not random, given how little information we’ve been given thus far we understand if parents elect to keep students home from classes.
We take the safety of our students, staff, and patrons very seriously, and we will advise you of any changes or advice from authorities as we know more.
Thank you, and please stay tuned on email for updates.
