LMPD identifies officer, serial robbery suspect involved in fatal confrontation No police footage is available of a shooting involving officers and a serial robbery suspect. The shooting happened around 10:24 a.m. in the area of Ruckriegel Parkway and Watterson Trail. Louisville Metro police said officers were making a traffic stop on a man believed to have been involved in several area business robberies. That man has been identified as Djuantez Anthony Mitchell, 30. When officers stopped Mitchell, he struck a Louisville Metro officer who was outside his vehicle, and then hit an unoccupied Jeffersontown police cruiser, police said. Then, officer Bryan Arnold fired multiple shots at Mitchell, police said.

They believed the person driving the car was a suspect responsible for several business robberies in the Louisville area.

As officers tried to stop the car, an LMPD officer got out of his vehicle but was hit by the suspect's car, Mitchell said. The suspect's car also hit a Jeffersontown police officer's car, Mitchell said.
