Mother of murder victim pleading for answers

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---Police continue to look for the person who shot a Louisville mother as she was walking into her West Louisville apartment.

"It's a nightmare that I can't wake up from. I want to wake up," says Belinda Carter.

Belinda Carter can't forget the scene outside of the Salisbury Apartments on Saturday.

Crime tape and police cars surrounded the building after her 30-year-old daughter, Dominique Carter-Bryant, was shot numerous times in the back parking lot. 

Belinda heard of the shooting and went to the scene.

"And, if you're a mother or a parent that's the most horrendous sight I've ever seen in my life when I seen my child out there. I don't know what else to do," says Belinda Carter.

A bullet hole is still visible in the back door of the building.

Belinda Carter says her daughter was heading inside to her family and was defenseless.

She doesn't believe this was a random shooting.

"They waited for her. Whoever it was waited for her. Six o'clock in the morning....they didn't rob her, so this was done intentionally," says  Carter.

Dominique Carter-Bryant was married with an 11-year-old daughter.

Her own mother can't understand why this happened, especially with everything going so well for her.

"Had just got a promotion at work. Was just getting ready to move out of here because she knows how the West End is. It seems like nobody's together down here. Everybody wants to shoot everybody," says Carter.

Carter is making a plea for the violence to stop. She's also asking someone to come forward in this case.

"So please, whoever knows something... please, please, call your police department. I need your help," says Belinda Carter.

This is the second homicide this year.

At this point, police still have no suspects in this case and encourage you to call the police tip line at 574-LMPD.
