Bungalow Joe's owner in disbelief after 3 men killed in 'totally random' shooting at restaurant
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Joe Bishop was still in disbelief the day after three customers were killed in a shooting at his restaurant, Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill.
"I didn't think I'd be scrubbing blood off my patio on a Saturday morning," Bishop told WDRB News. "I thought I was getting ready for everybody to watch the ballgame."
Bishop said he had just gone to sleep when he got a call around 11:15 p.m. Friday from one of his managers about a shooting at the restaurant. When he got to the scene, one of the victims had been rushed to a hospital, and two others were lying on the patio. According to Bishop, it was a normal Friday night at Bungalow Joe’s when a man walked up to the restaurant and shot three customers, all men, who were sitting in the patio area at point-blank range.
"Nobody had ever seen this guy before," Bishop said, referring to the shooter. "It was a totally random act."
The men did not exchange words "at any point in time" before the shooting, according to Bishop.
"Social media is full of people saying this happened and that happened and wanted to get political with it; there was nothing political about what happened," he added.
Louisville Metro Police officers responded to the bar, located on Beulah Church Road, around 11:30 p.m. Two of the men who were shot, Toreon Jermaine Hudson, 26, and William Scott Smallwood, 48, were pronounced dead at the scene ...
