LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Police are investigating after a woman was gunned down in broad daylight Saturday.

The shooting happened just after 5 p.m. in the Algonquin neighborhood near the Park Hill Housing Complex.

Officers discovered the woman’s body on a sidewalk at the corner of South 12th and Hill Streets.

Metro Police say the area is inundated with violence, something they’re trying to change.

“There have been several shootings and even on Easter Sunday, there was a fatality about a block from here. Obviously, no matter what the location, whenever there’s a loss of life and seemingly no reason for loss of life, it’s always devastating for the community,” LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell said.

If you have any information that could help police during this investigation, you are urged to call the Anonymous Tip Line at 574-LMPD.
