Teen Killed in Early Morning Shooting

CREATED Dec. 9, 2012

"About 3:30 this morning I just heard 3 gunshots."

For most of the day the neighborhood of 42nd and Browne sat covered in crime tape. Police are still trying to figure out what happened early Sunday morning.
"I don't, at this point I don't know the circumstances or a motive."

At 3:45 a.m. officers found a young woman, believed to be 18 years old, suffering from a gunshot wound.

Critically injured, paramedics rushed her to Creighton University Medical Center. She later died.

Neighbors who woke up to the sound of gunshots don't know why it happened, but it isn't the first time on this block.

"But down the street there's been 3 shootings at the same house. How does that make you feel? I fear for my kids, I have 3 little ones and we just want to get out of this neighborhood."

This neighbor did not want her face shown. She says she doesn't even want her kids to play outside here for fear something terrible might happen.
