LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police are searching for a suspect after two people were shot inside an apartment Monday in the Newburg neighborhood.

Officers were called to Willow Creek apartments on Shepherdsville Road, near Mansfield Lane just before 11:00 a.m.

Police say a 19-year-old man was killed and a 25-year-old female was shot in the face, but they say she is expected to survive.

"The female does appear that she will be okay," said LMPD Public Information Officer Carey Klain. She says police are hoping to learn more about the suspect when they can communicate with the woman.

Klain says investigators believe the gunman may have known the victims. The suspect is described as a black male with braids, who is in his early 20s.

Police say a toddler was found inside the apartment, but is okay.
