Police say three black males who appeared to be in their 20s kicked in the door of a home at that location.

Authorities say, a 20-year-old man was inside the home, who was caring for his mother.

"This 20-year-old was able to gain a firearm. He did discharge that firearm at these 3 individuals, and he believed he struck one of those individuals," says Sgt. Robert Biven with Louisville Metro Police.

One of the suspects was shot at least twice, according to police.
