LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Four people were shot and killed this weekend in Louisville, bringing the total number of murders for the year to 113. It's frustrating for the community as well as police. 

There were two murders on Friday, one murder on Saturday and one on Sunday. So far, there have been no arrests. 

The most recent murder happened Sunday. Police say a man was found shot to death around 1:45 p.m. in the area of Broadway and Shelby Street. Neighbors say they heard gunshots, came outside and found the victim's body.

On Saturday, police were called to Jewish Hospital just before 10 p.m. after 37-year-old Don Mabry showed up there with gunshot wounds. The coroner says he died during surgery.

On Friday, family members of 27-year-old Wilson Burton say he was killed near Beecher Terrace. Also that day, a man who police say is in his late teens or early 20s was driving on 25th Street when he was shot while behind the wheel.

"I think the frustration level isn't just with the homicide unit, or metro police, or metro government," said LMPD spokeswoman Alicia Smiley. "I think it's high for community. I think it's very obvious when you look at social media or when you talk to people. I think everyone is sick and tired of what's going on."

As always, anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 502-574-LMPD (574-5673).
