LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An anti-violence advocate and youth mentor in Louisville was shot and wounded while on his way to his son’s school for a Christmas gathering.

The Courier-Journal (https://cjky.it/1Of8lpa ) reports that 37-year-old Aubrey Williams Jr. was shot Friday. Williams was identified by Sadiqa Reynolds, president and CEO of the Louisville Urban League, where Williams formerly worked as a youth development specialist, the newspaper reported.

Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said a man was shot once near the school, sustaining non-fatal injuries, though she did not identify the man. The wounded man was picked up by a passer-by, who began to drive him to the hospital, though an ambulance met them and transported the man to University of Louisville Hospital.

Smiley said there were no suspects as of Friday afternoon.
