Friends and family remember WKU student killed last weekend

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Friends and family members gathered tonight to remember a Western Kentucky University student shot and killed a week ago.

Cheryl Williamson was leaving a party at the Gillespie when violence broke out.

Her loved ones held a candlelight vigil in front of 5th and Market Streets tonight to remember the 24-year-old.

The Western Kentucky senior was attending a party at the Gillespie last Saturday when she was shot in the chest after an argument with two men.

Her family and friends have called the shooting "senseless."

Homicide detectives are looking at surveillance footage from nearby businesses in an effort to find those responsible.

Williamson's friends and family will be holding a walk Sunday afternoon to raise awareness about club and venue violence, according to community activist Christopher 2x. The walk will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the corner of Floyd and Market Streets and will end at the crime scene on 5th and Market.
