1 dead in South Clay Street shooting

Police are investigating a homicide in the Phoenix Hill neighborhood at the Liberty Green apartments

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Metro Police are investigating the city’s latest homicide.

“I just pulled up and they was like, somebody, a woman got shot and killed and I'm like, what?” neighbor D’Ella Irving said. 

Police responded to the 300 block of South Clay Street at the Liberty Green Apartments in the Phoenix Hill neighborhood around 6 p.m.

“I heard two, what sounded like fireworks, so something told me to just stay in there, then I heard three more,” neighbor Shekinah Armstrong said. 

Shekinah Armstrong lives below the victim's apartment and was home at the time of the shooting.  She remembers what she heard upstairs moments before the gunshots. 

“It sounded like, maybe furniture, just furniture being moved or something being dropped, maybe it could've been like a scuffle but I don't know it wasn't anything unusual,” she explained. 

Police are still investigating, but some neighbors believe it may have been some sort of home invasion.

“Way too close for comfort, I mean, it was crazy like, I don't think anybody knew really what was going on because it's so quiet over here literally just sounded like somebody was letting off fireworks,” Armstrong said.

Police have not revealed details of what led up to the shooting or the victim’s identity.
