LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville police say a shooting at a condominium complex was carried out by a man who fatally shot his ex-girlfriend and their 8-year-old daughter, wounded his mother during a struggle and then killed himself.

Police Lt. Todd Kessinger described what happened Thursday at a news conference, saying the motive for the shootings a day earlier was domestic-related.

Deputy coroner Rita Taylor identified the two victims as 36-year-old Jillian Wood and her 8-year-old daughter, Shelby Stewart. She says both died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Deputy coroner R.D. Jones identified the suspect as 40-year-old Gary Stewart. Jones says he died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

Kessinger says the former couple's 12-year-old son and the uncle of the suspect fled the condo during the shooting Wednesday afternoon.

Kessinger says an argument broke out in the uncle's apartment before Stewart opened fire.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police say they think a domestic issue prompted a shooting at a condominium complex in an upscale Louisville neighborhood that claimed three lives and left a fourth person badly wounded.

Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell identified the dead as a girl, a 38-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man, but didn't release their names. He says a woman in her 60s was hospitalized in critical condition.

Mitchell says Wednesday afternoon's shooting at the Lakeview Condominum complex near Bellarmine University in Louisville is being investigated by a homicide unit. He didn't release a motive.

Mitchell says the suspect apparently was among the dead and police don't think anyone is "on the loose." He didn't identify the suspect.

The University of Louisville Hospital said it had no immediate information on the woman's condition Thursday.
