Homicide 3300 block of Flora

Tonight just after 9:45pm officers were dispatched to the 3300 block of Flora on a sound of shots call.

While officers were on the way the call was upgraded to a shooting with a victim inside a residence in the 3300 block of Flora.

On arrival officers were led inside a residence where they located a female shooting victim unresponsive.

Officers rendered aid and called for EMS who responded and took over treatment of the victim.

EMS transported the victim to the hospital where she was declared deceased a short time later.

The victim is believed to be a juvenile over the age of 10.
