LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A young woman is shot in the face and a 19-year-old murdered. It all happened with a young child inside the home. It happened Monday morning in the Newburg neighborhood.
Right now, police are still trying to identify who the suspect is, but some neighbors believe they know him and even heard the deadly confrontation.
"Sounds like furniture and stuff was turning over, and she was hollering, 'don't do that, don't do that, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, please don't do it'," said a neighbor.
The neighbor doesn't want us to reveal her identity, but she does share some of the disturbing sounds she heard coming from the apartment where the shooting happened.
"I woke up this morning at about 10 minutes 'til 11 and I heard all of this bumping and a bumping. She's hollering 'no, no, no, no, don't do that, don't do that'!"
It happened just before 11 o'clock at the Willow Creek Apartments on Shepherdsville Road, police say the 19 year old man was killed and a 25 year old woman was shot inside an apartment there.
"She has been shot in the face and so we were unable to find out a whole lot of information at this time," said Officer Carey Klain, with LMPD.
Right now, the victim can't share much information, but police have learned a few things about the suspect.
"I just have a black male with braids is the individual that they are trying to contact at this point -- to see where he is and if he has any information," said Officer Klain.
And no surprise, police consider the suspect armed and dangerous. "Obviously, we've got two people who have been shot today, so ah, the suspect is very dangerous," said Officer Klain.
Some of the people on the scene are visibly upset, but neighbors don't seem too concerned that the shooter is still on the loose.
"Naw, I'm not worried," said a neighbor. "Like I said, he done did what he wanted to do."
Meanwhile, besides the shootings, there is one other thing that does concern neighbors there.
"Other people that live here got little kids and he's running around shooting," said the neighbor.
Police say the toddler inside the apartment was not hurt. Anyone with information about the suspect should call LMPD's anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD.
