Louisville Mayoral Candidate Craig Greenberg Targeted in Shooting, Police Say

Louisville Police arrested a suspect who targeted Democratic mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg in a shooting in his office on Feb. 14.

Police said a person walked into Greenberg’s campaign office in the Butchertown neighborhood and opened fire at 10:15 a.m. local time, striking Greenberg’s clothing but he remained unharmed.

No one sustained injuries, police said.

“My team and I are fortunately all safe,” Greenberg said on Twitter, adding that he will provide an update soon.

According to the police, preliminary information showed that Greenberg appeared to be the intended target, but there was no known motive at this time.

Police said officers are monitoring other mayoral candidates and community leaders.

“Right now we are looking at this from all angles,” Louisville Police Chief Erika Shields said at a press conference.

“Until we can determine what the motivating factors were, we are going to keep an open mind and proceed with an abundance of caution with many of our community members,” Shields said.

Police believe the suspect, whose identity has not been released, acted alone.

The investigation continues.
