While en route to the Southside Drive area, Detective Chris Hill, our lead investigator, was contacted by the Detectives of the Louisville Metro Police Department 3rd Division. He was advised that 3rd Division officers responded to a reported shooting at a parking lot at 6629 Southside Drive. Upon arrival, they found Bradlee Simmons, our murder suspect had apparently been shot.
Due to previous communication between our two agencies, the officers and Detectives of LMPD’s 3rd Division recognized Simmons as our other murder suspect in the Kevin Watts murder,” stated Sheriff Walt Sholar.
