LOUISVILLE — A Jeffersonville man was murdered after interrupting a burglary in progress at his place of work in Louisville early Friday morning, police report.

Philip Schultz, 63, Riverview Court, succumbed to “blunt-force trauma” after the attack said Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell.

Schultz was taken to University of Louisville Hospital where he later died at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

Mitchell said it remains unclear what the supect[s] were doing in the building when Schultz showed up for work around 4:30 a.m.

He said the investigation is ongoing.

Those with information of the incident are asked to contact police at 502-574-LMPD.
