LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Neighbors are on edge after three murders within just a few blocks of each other in one south Louisville neighborhood. They've all happened with the last year.
They've all taken place on or near Kingston Avenue on Louisville's south side. The first was June 16, 2012. A man died after he was attacked with a tree limb. Then December 29, 2012, a shooting left one dead and another wounded.
Just this week, late Wednesday night, a triple shooting killed one and left two others wounded.
WDRB set out to talk to residents.
"I believe it was personal. I don't think they were random. I think people got caught up in the wrong situation like drugs, money, gambling," said Nakishia Thompson who lives nearby.
Thompson says it's not easy staying out of trouble in the area.
"(I stay safe) by just staying to myself. I don't be in the streets and I try not to socialize with people who are trouble," said Thompson.
Thompson worries about her two young daughters who like to play outside.
"They know better. They don't leave from out in front the house," she said.
"I believe it has a lot to do with drugs and alcohol," said Michelle Leonard who visits friends at Kingston Park Apartments daily.
Leonard says the police presence has improved in the last few years.
"They've really started going in there and trying to do something about it," said Leonard.
Leonard was there the night of the most recent shooting.
"I worry about the kids more than I do the adults because the kids are out playing and you never know when something's going to happen," she said.
WDRB asked Leonard if the crime makes her think twice about visiting.
"At night, yeah. During the day, not so much but at night, yeah."
