All Henderson County Schools will be closed Tuesday, January 16th. Childcare centers will be open at Bend Gate, East Heights, and TPJELC.

We've had two traffic accidents since 11:30am and numerous motorist assists. The roadways are treacherous at this time. Please stay home unless absolutely necessary. If you must be out, make sure your cell phone is fully charged, you have blankets in the vehicle, and maintain more distance between vehicles when driving.

Between midnight and 8:30am this morning, we have only had one very minor accident in the city. The roads are dangerously slick and will remain so throughout the day. Thank you for not making unnecessary trips out and driving cautiously if you must be out. Please keep an eye out for your neighbors. Especially the elderly or those with medical issues. Also be very cautious if you are using alternative heat sources. Make sure you have proper ventilation and keep children away from those sources to reduce the chances of fire and injuries.

William Johnson Jr. of Louisville has been arrested for attempted murder and wanton endangerment 1st degree. Johnson admitted to shooting Cecil Davis six times. Johnson is lodged at the Henderson County Detention Center.

We are currently investigating a shooting that occurred around 3:15pm at 345 Spring Garden. Two male subjects were arguing when one of the men began shooting. The victim was shot multiple times and was transported by ambulance for treatment. The suspect was caught within minutes as officers saw him walking near the scene. Schools were not placed on lockdown since the suspect was located in a matter of minutes. No names are being released at this time.

CITIZEN'S ACADEMY applications are now being accepted for the spring class beginning on March 13th. The class is every Tuesday night from 6p-8p for eight weeks and is held at the Henderson Police Department. Each week, you will learn about a different aspect of the police department such as the Traffic & Patrol Division, Investigations, Training, Conducting Traffic Stops, and a trip to the Henderson County Detention Center. Please contact Wendy Sugg at 270-831-1295 to register and please share with your family & friends. It is completely free. Join us and bring a friend.

Today members of HPD, HFD, KSP, HCSO, HCDC and Zion FD got to play Santa Claus for a family who recently lost their mom in an automobile accident. Thanks to 911 Give Hope, Henderson Chevrolet, and the Henderson FOP Lodge #9, we were able to put a smile on the faces of this wonderful family and bring some Christmas cheer into their lives!
