LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man was shot while driving early Sunday morning after leaving a Louisville nightclub and crashed the car in front of a school, according to Louisville Metro Police.

Community activist Christopher 2X said the 29-year-old victim had been at The View nightclub on Story Avenue when an ongoing dispute with a group escalated, apparently over a song. 2X said the disagreement started two weeks earlier and had escalated on Facebook.

When the man left the club's parking lot going west on Main Street, he was shot by someone in another vehicle.

After the shooting, he crashed his car in front of Lincoln Elementary School on Main Street. He was transported by EMS to University Hospital where he was listed in serious condition Sunday night.

According to 2X, the victim lost a great deal of blood and was expected to undergo a second surgery as soon as he is stable. 2X said the man was shot in the lower abdomen and some of his internal organs were damaged.

So far, no one is under arrest.

Anyone with information about this case should call or text the anonymous police tip line at 502-574-LMPD.
