Clarksville Police are investigating a murder from last night.
A news release says officers responded to a shooting in progress in the area of Reynolds and Dodd Street around 8pm and found a 50-year old man lying in the street with a handgun in his hand and with multiple gunshot wounds.
He was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he would later die from his injuries. Public Information Officer Jim Knoll says police have very few details at this time and that the name of the victim is being withheld for now.
Anyone with information on the incident should call the Clarksville Tipsline at 931-645-8477.
After receiving tax incentives from state and local governments, there will be another ground-breaking ceremony for the Oak Grove Village project next month.
The ceremony will take place October 4th at 1pm at the property across from Gate 7 on Fort Campbell Boulevard. A reception will follow at Valor Hall.
The Kentucky General Assembly and Christian Fiscal Court recently approved tax increment financing plans for the large project, which would create hundreds of jobs, if successful.
Oak Grove Village is supposed to include a shopping mall and some type of amusement park.
A wreck on Skyline Drive yesterday afternoon injured two area residents.
The incident happened around 12:45 in front of Kroger, according to the report from Hopkinsville Police, which says 49-year old Tana Shade of Hopkinsville was attempting to turn left out of the Kroger parking lot and didn’t see an oncoming vehicle driven by 40-year old Christopher Tapp of Madisonville.
Tapp was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision and the two cars collided in the eastbound lanes. Both drivers were wearing their seat belt and were taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for treatment of back pain.
Today marked a momentous occasion for the City of Hopkinsville.
A crowd of people gathered this afternoon to witness officials conduct a ceremonial groundbreaking for the city’s Municipal Center at the downtown building site at 715 South Virginia Street.
Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp said the ceremony was a long time coming and that he’s glad to see plans for the proposed multi-million dollar project are progressing.
Hopkinsville residents will have to wait a little longer to find out whether or not a smoking ban will be implemented city wide.
Hopkinsville City Council once again discussed the city’s proposed smoking ordinance tonight and on a 6 to 5 vote decided to postpone taking action on the first reading of the proposed ordinance.
Councilwoman Ann Cherry says she was in favor of delaying taking action because Mayor Dan Kemp set a precedent.
