(CBS/AP) LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A domestic dispute apparently prompted the midweek shooting at a condominium complex in an upscale Louisville neighborhood that claimed three lives and left a fourth person severely injured, police said.

Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell identified the dead from the shooting Wednesday afternoon as a girl, a 38-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man. He didn't release their names nor disclose a possible motive in the hours after the shooting.

According to CBS affiliate WLKY, a woman in her 60's was critically wounded and taken to the hospital. Her name has not been released.

The shooting at the Lakeview Condominum complex located near a neighborhood of upper middle class homes in Louisville is being investigated by a homicide unit, Mitchell said.

He said the suspect apparently was among the dead and police don't think anyone was "on the loose." He didn't identify the suspect but said police had gathered evidence and were interviewing witnesses.

Mitchell said the shootings took place inside a residence but he declined to say whether there were other people inside at the time.

Alexa Hall, a resident of the Lakeview Condominum complex, told The Courier-Journal newspaper  of Louisville that she was at the complex's pool when a man and a boy came running, shouting that shots had been fired. They urged someone to call police, according to the newspaper.

She described a scene of panic and confusion soon after the shooting.

"Nobody really knew what to do," she said, adding people stood by watching as police arrived.
