Michelle Moore Death – Obituary : The Louisville Metro police say one of three juveniles shot last night on Cecil Avenue was the person responsible for the July fatal shooting of a 16-year-old girl on the same street about two months ago.
The victim Michelle Moore, died July 22nd after being shot in the 200 block of Cecil Avenue, reports states.
Authorities said Moore’s death was the second homicide of a 16-year-old girl in the same block within hours.
Lt. Col. Andy McClinton say another 16-year-old, was already suspected in Moore’s death. He was arrested after detectives learned that he was one of Monday night’s shooting victims.
“It’s very tough for our officers to see 14, 15-year-old kids being harmed, being shot, being killed, and it’s also heartbreaking to see them be arrested, I just wish things like this would stop around here,” Robert McNair said. “What ever happened to (taking care of) women and children? I’m not surprised, because I’ve heard about plenty of it happening. At the end of the day, I say, ‘Stop the violence,” McClinton added.
Because the suspect is a juvenile, the name of the teen will not be released unless he is charged as an adult, as law inclines.
McClinton said the teen is currently being held in a juvenile detention facility.
