At least two people are dead and several others injured after a mass shooting at a Kentucky homeless shelter on Thursday night.
Henderson Police identified the suspect as Kenneth R Gibbs, who is from the area.
The shooting occurred just after 7.30pm local time, authorities said.
Henderson Police announced that Gibbs, who had last been seen driving a white Toyota Prius, was located and taken into custody shortly after the shooting.
“At 2155 hours, the Henderson Police Department located Kenneth Gibbs and has taken him into custody,” police said.
No details about a possible motive in the shooting have been released.
City Commissioner Robert Pruitt confirmed the first death from the shooting, which happened at the Harbor House and Christian Center.
City spokeswoman Donna Stinnett confirmed a second fatality.
Local reports indicated that two people were found fatally shot in the building, while others were transported to a nearby hospital with injuries.
About 15 people were inside the center at the time, Pruitt said.
Stinnett said that the suspect was a resident at the center.
The scene has been secured, said Henderson police.
None of the victims have been identified at this time.
Harbor House and Christian Center is a shelter for men in need of food, clothing, and other assistance.
One resident, Brian McClain, told Courier & Press that he was in a dormitory after a church service when he saw the alleged shooter.
“He looked at me funny and shut the light back off, and when he went out the dorm room, it wasn’t five seconds later I heard shots,” McClain said.
He was able to escape through a window but not before he encountered someone who had been shot in the shoulder.
McClain said he knew at least two of the victims, calling the situation “crazy.”
