A gun that killed two people in a pubs store in Jeffersontown, Ky., On Wednesday, attempted to enter a predominantly black church minutes before the attack, police said on Thursday.
Man Gregory Bush 51, of Louisville, arraigned Thursday on two bills of murder and 10 bills of unnecessary threat. He was ordered with $ 5 million bail. Police said they investigated the motive for the attack, which killed Vickie Lee Jones, 67, and Maurice E. Stallard, 69.
Both were black while Mr. Bush was white and the testimony’s son said dad heard the gun making a racist remark during the episode, even though the police said they could not confirm that account. Mr. Bush has a history of mental illness, said Chief Sam Rogers of Jeffersontown Police Department at a press conference on Thursday.
