Shooting at a house party near UK campus injures 11

Stu Johnson

The investigation continues into a shooting at a house party just before midnight near the University of Kentucky. A female student was shot in the leg and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The shooting occurred at the 200 block of University Avenue. Ten other students suffered injuries from shrapnel and debris but are not life-threatening injuries. UK reports the shooting occurred after two uninvited subjects came to the party and an altercation ensued. Police have arrested 19-year-old Jason Almanza-Arroyo in connection with the shooting. He is not a UK student. Two arrests, unrelated to the shooting, have also been made and additional charges are pending.
