CLARKSVILLE — One person was hospitalized for a self-inflicted gunshot wound after Clarksville police responded to reports of shots fired Monday night.
Police were called to an apartment in the 600 block of Dartmouth Drive just before 11 p.m. Monday, according a news release from the Clarksville Police Department.
When police made contact with a man inside the apartment, it became clear that he was armed. According to the release, the man "refused to cooperate with police." Officers established a perimeter and evacuated nearby residents.
Police then confirmed the man, later identified as Travis Ruby of New Albany, had fired multiple rounds inside the apartment. Ruby reportedly told police he was armed with an AR-15 and other weapons. A regional SWAT team was called in and attempted to make contact with Ruby. It was at that time that police heard a single gunshot from inside the apartment.
SWAT members entered the apartment moments later and confirmed Ruby had a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was alive and transported to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment.
No other injuries were reported. Police continue to investigate.
