Investigation underway after reports that LMPD officers denied service at Louisville Taco Bell

Taco Bell has launched an investigation after five LMPD officers were allegedly denied service at one of its restaurants in Louisville.

According to Fraternal Order of Police President Dave Mutchler, five uniformed LMPD officers working the state fair stopped at the Taco Bell on Preston Hwy. and Phillips Lane around lunchtime on Aug. 18. That's when one man behind the counter reportedly walked away saying, "I'm not taking this order."

LMPD officers shoot and kill armed man in southwest Louisville

A man is dead after being shot by Louisville Metro Police in southwest Louisville.

Chief Steve Conrad says three officers were responding to a domestic dispute at an apartment on Broadleaf Drive about 1:30 a.m. Monday. That's off Cane Run Road near Crums Lane.

Conrad says the man came out of the apartment armed with a knife and what he called "another edged weapon" that may have been a tree saw or a machete.

Officers told him to drop his weapons, but instead, the man allegedly charged the officers. Chief Conrad says two officers shot the man to protect their lives. The man died at the scene.

What happened in Dallas, Texas on Thursday has led to temporary changes with LMPD.

Right now, officers being told to double up and travel in twos.

2nd Division officers Christopher Priel and Clinton Brake hit the streets with heavy hearts on Friday.

"It's tough to see your brothers and sister, whether it's in Dallas or whether it's here in Louisville, it's tough to see them go through that," Brake said.

Police across the country and here in Kentuckiana are grieving after five Dallas police officers were ambushed and killed Thursday. And it is why Priel and Brake are riding the beat together for now.

Suspect in cop shooting was in Fla. with sister

A gunman accused of shooting a Louisville Metro Police officer in the chest is now sitting in a Florida jail cell, nabbed Thursday afternoon at his sister's apartment.

Jacquan Lamont Crowley, 22, didn't put up a fight when surrounded by federal police and an investigator with the Volusia County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office just before 4 p.m., said Gary Davidson, a sheriff's office spokesman.

The U.S. Marshals Service had received a tip that the Louisville suspect could be in the area. They teamed with a sheriff's investigator to watch the sister's place at Sunrise Pointe Apartments in Port Orange until they spotted Crowley leaving and moved in to arrest him, Davidson said.
