LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The coroner's office has identified the victim in an early morning shooting in Okolona.
Police were called to a home in the 6500 block of Larry Lane near Preston Highway around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. That's where they found 33-year-old Gerald Jackson. He had been shot to death. His girlfriend and four children -- all under age 12 -- were inside the home at the time of the shooting, but they were unharmed.
The children were taken to a safe place, and the man's girlfriend was interviewed by police. We're told she is not a suspect in Jackson's murder.
Police towed two Dodge Durangos from the victim's driveway. Evidence technicians snapped photos and gathered more evidence from inside the home; K9 units were brought to the crime scene Wednesday afternoon to sniff out more clues. Typically the K9s can detect drugs, explosives, even gunpowder residue.
Neighbors expressed fear and surprise.
"I worry for my children," said Travis Saylor. "Like I said this is normally a quiet neighborhood, and there are times I leave the door unlocked at night and don't lose any sleep."
Don Strong described his neighbors as "a nice family as far as I know. I never saw anything out of the ordinary. Just ordinary people."
It was a rude awakening for Dale Murphy, who lives two doors from Jackson's house.
"I was sleeping and I heard a knock on the door and it was the police, caution tape lined up in the front yard and everything," Murphy said.
Police say they aren't sure if they're looking for one or more suspects, and were unable to release further information this early in the investigation. They did say there had been no previous trouble reports from the victim's home.
