One man was shot and killed late Wednesday night, and another man was stabbed during a separate robbery a short distance from the deadly shooting.

The Bowling Green Police Department was notified at 10:37 p.m. Wednesday that someone had been shot near 2116 Rock Creek Drive. Officers found Nevander S. Tardy, 27, of Bowling Green, in the area between 2116 and 2120 Rock Creek Drive.

Tardy, who appeared to have suffered multiple gunshot wounds, was pronounced dead at the scene. His body was sent to Louisville for an autopsy.

Residents in the area told police they heard a confrontation just before gunshots, according to BGPD.

No arrests have been made in the homicide, and detectives are canvassing the neighborhood in an effort to locate anyone with information about the shooting, according to BGPD.

City police also investigated a stabbing late Wednesday on Hillridge Court.

Tyrone Maurice Rickett, 29, was booked into the Warren County Regional Jail at 4:59 a.m. Thursday on charges of first-degree assault and first-degree robbery.

Rickett’s arrest citation said city police responded about 10:30 p.m. to a reported stabbing in front of 112 Hillridge Court.

Two men reported that they were robbed at gunpoint by a man they did not know, later identified by police as Rickett.

One of the reported victims, Nicholas Donnell, told police he was shot with a pellet gun in the lip and the side and got into a physical altercation with his assailant.

Donnell and Jesse Tindall, also identified as a victim, told police that the robber pulled a knife on them and swung it at the men.

Tindall suffered serious injuries from being stabbed, according to Rickett’s arrest citation.

An independent witness reported seeing Rickett with a knife after the altercation. Rickett denied any involvement in the robbery and also denied having a gun or knife, according to his arrest citation.

No bond has been set for him, according to information on the jail’s website.

Rickett was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning before Warren District Court Judge Sam Potter.

The homicide and the stabbing are not believed to be related, according to BGPD spokesman Officer Ronnie Ward.
