Reginald Stacy Sudderth, 43, of Louisville was shot to death on August 22 at 2515 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. by Troy D. Whiteside, 41. Sudderth was once a murder supect himself. According to the Sentnel:

"Sudderth was acquitted of murder charges in 2006. In that case, he had been accused of offering a $10,000 bounty to A.C. Copeland in 1998 to kill two men who were suspected of raping his girlfriend.

"One of the men — 18-year-old Andre Jackson — was fatally shot twice in the chest and once in the testicles, a wound that prosecutors dubbed a “message shot” from Sudderth. A second man, Chris Knighton, is serving a lengthy prison sentence for the attack on Sudderth’s girlfriend.

"Copeland was himself wounded by gunfire a few hours after Jackson’s slaying in a purported confrontation with Sudderth and a companion. Copeland was later convicted of Jackson’s murder and sentenced to death but his conviction was overturned on appeal."

Troy Eugene Cullom, 23, was shot to death on November 12 at the Ridgebrook Apartments complex off Western Avenue. G'juan Williams, 24 appeared at UT Hospital shortly afterward with a gunshot wound to one of his arms, and the articles at the time speculated that he might have killed Cullom in a shootout. I haven't found any article detailing an arrest or charges.
