LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Homicide detectives are investigating after a woman was fatally shot in a home in south Jefferson County. 

It happened around 8:30 a.m. in 11000 block of Altsheler Place near Mt. Washington Road and Preston Hwy. not far from the Bullitt County line.

According to LMPD spokeswoman Alicia Smiley, the victim was a female in her late teens or early 20s who was pronounced dead inside a home. Smiley says police believe she lived in the home. 

Timothy Schneidmeller, who lives nearby, tells WDRB that the woman was staying at the home with her boyfriend and his grandparents. He says he saw the victim this morning, and has been trying to reach her boyfriend. 

"I'm going to try to contact him," Schneidmeller said. "I've already tried to contact him to make sure he's OK, that he doesn't do anything silly."

Investigators are trying to determine if anyone else was inside the home when the victim was shot.

At this time, there are no suspects, but police are asking anyone with information to call the LMPD tipline at 502-574-LMPD (574-5873).
