LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a teenager has died after he was shot by a family member in Louisville's Parkland neighborhood Friday morning.
The shooting happened near the intersection of West Kentucky and South 32nd Streets, at about 9:45 a.m.
"When officers arrived, they did locate a 14-year old male inside the home, that had apparently been shot," said Dwight Mitchell, LMPD Spokesperson.
"He received fatal injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene."
Mitchell added that police are not currently looking for suspects.
"At this time we feel we have all the persons that are involved," he said. "We are interviewing them now at this point. It’s a very tragic thing that has happened here, and we’re continuing the investigation."
Mitchell declined to comment on how the shooting may have taken place.
"We're looking at all aspects at this point of what went on here," he said. But Mitchell said they hope to determine what happened, as officers conduct interviews.
Right now, police are treating the case as a death investigation, but also see it as another tragedy and so do neighbors.
"That baby did not deserve it, he deserves to be out here playing and going to school and getting an education," said Ashley Lanham, who is a neighbor.
Lanham and a lot of her neighbors are grieving with the family of the 14-year old victim.
She said, "I feel so much pain and hurt for the little boy who is gone. I feel sorry for the family."
"I've been doing this for 58-years, and I've never seen it like this," said Civil Rights icon Rev. Dr. Charles Elliott.
Rev. was called to the scene by a family member. He calls what happened part of an epidemic. Just last week, Rev. Elliott eulogized two teens.
"A 17-year old did the killing and then one of the boys was only 16-years of age and the other was 17, and now we got a 14-year old," said Rev. Elliott.
Meanwhile, last week, Chief Steve Conrad made a public plea about securing guns. The chief's message is being echoed -- after yet another tragedy.
Mitchell said, "It is always a sober reminder of what we need to do in our community in terms of securing weapons and things of this nature."
"And I hope and pray to God on a daily, that it motivates other parents to know, hey, this could be me at any given time," said Lanham.
