LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A woman was shot and killed in the middle of the day today on Rowan Street, near S. 25th Street.

Detectives and officers had been at the scene since around noon. Their investigation centered around a silver Ford that was in the middle of Rowan Street. The police department had going door-to-door, looking for clues.

The police helicopter could also be seen circling the scene.

At this point, police say they could be looking for more than one suspect, but right now they have no concrete leads.

Today's shooting is the latest in a series of violent days that is weighing on this community.

"That's why I'm glad I don't have any kids," said Lori Westerfield, who lives in the West End. "I wouldn't let my kids grow up being like that....in violence. I just need to try to get out of the West End and everything, just stay away."

Very little information has been released about the female victim. We expect to learn more once her family has been notified by the coroner.
