A man was shot dead in Louisville after police officers and the Kentucky National Guard “returned fire” while clearing a large crowd early Monday.

Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad said in a statement that at around 12:15 a.m. his officers and the National Guard were sent to a parking lot to break up a crowd.

“Officers and soldiers began to clear the lot and at some point were shot at,” Conrad said in a statement.

“Both LMPD and National Guard members returned fire, we have one man dead at scene”.

Louisville police say they are interviewing “several persons of interests” and collecting video.

More than 40 people were arrested Sunday night, the city's fourth consecutive night of demonstrations, according to NBC Louisville affiliate WAVE.

Officers were not involved in the Thursday shootings, Police Sgt. Lamont Washington said at the time. »

Apple’s adjusted price of the RAM upgrade is unusual not only because it is an increase, compared with the traditional decrease, but also because the 13-inch MacBook Pro was only released earlier this month. »
