A Kentucky man isn’t expected to survive after being shot Sunday evening while walking home from the hospital, where he saw the birth of his two children hours earlier.
WAVE 3 NBC reported that Tyrese Garvin, 20, was randomly gunned down in Smoketown after leaving from University Hospital. His family claimed he was shot multiple times in the head and body and doctors and neurosurgeons determined he won’t recover from his injuries.
According to WLKY CBS, three juveniles, ages 14 to 17, were arrested in connection with the shooting. Relatives told the news station that they plan to take Garvin off of life support in the upcoming days.
“Many of the recent non-fatal shootings and homicides in Louisville have been drive-by,” lieutenant Emily Mckinley said during a press conference where she spoke about 20 recent shootings, including the one involving Garvin.
Garvin is reportedly at the same hospital as his newborn children, who are in the maternity ward. The babies were taken to see their father, his family told WAVE.
The suspects’ identities and the charges they’re facing weren’t made available to the public. It’s likely that charges will be upgraded following Garvin’s death.
