More people dying in LMPD shootings

Albert William Keyes stepped out of his truck, a 4-inch knife in hand, and lunged at the sheriff's deputies surrounding him.

The 15 rounds the deputies fired at him in that parking lot last March were the first shots in what has become the deadliest year for local police in at least a decade. Law enforcement officers in Louisville have shot and killed five people in 2014 - more than in the last five years combined.

But Chief Mark Palmer hoped the move would bolster public trust and increase police accountability.

Louisville police have started a new search for a company to outfit officers with body cameras, slowing down an effort already behind the department's self-imposed schedule.

Police officials told WDRB News in August that a goal of deploying cameras by July 1 wasn't met because of concerns about data storage, but that the department intended to purchase officer-worn cameras manufactured by Taser, as recommended in a 2013 internal report.

A Louisville Metro Police officer spends his own money for some kids on his patrol route. It is a pretty big gift for the kids he has built a relationship with.

On any given afternoon, you may spot Anthony Holt and his friends on Powell Avenue right after school. "We usually come out here and throw the football, or play on that basket rim," said Holt.
