Two Louisville Metro Police officers are recovering from injuries suffered during a shooting incident yesterday.

One officer was admitted to the hospital after his face was grazed by a bullet; a second officer was treated for cuts from shattered glass.

LMPD says a man opened fire on the officers as they stopped his van at 18th Street and Nelligan Avenue in the Portland neighborhood. The man then apparently took his own life.

The incident remains under investigation.
