LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) –A body has been discovered in the aftermath of a fire at an apartment complex during a SWAT situation.

The suspect had barricaded himself inside the building in the 400 block of South Campbell, according to LMPD spokesperson Dwight Mitchell. Members of the LMPD VIPER unit were attempting to serve a warrant on the man, who police said has a violent history.
The Louisville Fire Department responded when the building caught fire. Crews were able to get the fire under control at 3:17 p.m.
