They found a woman down in the courtyard of the complex. LMPD says they tried to take life-saving measures but weren’t able to save the woman.

LMPD’s Public Information Officer Alicia Smiley told WAVE 3 News they can’t solve these crimes without help from the community.

“It’s very important that we bring some sense of justice to family and friends who are out here tonight. You can see and hear there are a number of people who are extremely upset.” Smiley Said.

Then around 10 pm, a massive police presence showed up for another shooting at the 900 block of Esquire Alley.
