LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Funeral information has been released for an 8-year-old child who was shot and killed in Louisville.

Eight-year-old Andre Lamont O'Neal Jr., of Jeffersonville, died after he was shot last Saturday night inside a home in the Shawnee neighborhood.

A source tells WDRB a visitation is scheduled for Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. at G.C. Williams Funeral Home, located at 1935 West Broadway.

The funeral will take place on Saturday at 11 a.m. at Midwest Church of Christ, located at 2115 Garland Avenue.
