A 26-year-old Louisville man died early yesterday at General Hospital of a gunshot wound he received in a shooting incident Wednesday night on Pope, just south of Frankfort. (Avenue)
Ronald J. Almond of 1637 Lucia, died at 2:37 a.m. of a gunshot wound in the back, according to Detuty coroner Lloyd Roemele.
Two other men were injuried in the incident.

Police were told that an argument ensued after a man and woman approached the victims' parked car. The man fired seven shots as the victims attempted to run away, witnesses said.
Griffin said the man chased and caught him, then beat him with the pistol.
