OWENSBORO, Ky. (WEHT) – At approximately 9:55 p.m. Saturday, the Owensboro Police Department was sent to the 200 block of E 19th St on a report of shots fired. When officers arrived, they say they found a deceased 15 year old boy with a single gunshot wound inside the residence.

By Sunday night, many in the community still had more questions than answers. One resident, Kayla Dulin says crime is far too common in her community.

There has been fights, like I’ve been in arguments with people, he’s been attacked and fought with. It’s not peaceful.

Nancy Henry knows the pain of losing a son to gun violence all too well. In August, her son Corban was shot and killed in Owensboro. She says she’s worried the lack of arrests in connection to her son’s death could lead to more gun violence.

I think as long as the killer of Corban Henry goes unchecked, it gives these other children that might want to do something bad the go ahead, like they wont be held accountable and there’s no consequences.

Henry also says she’s offering her support to the latest gun violence victim’s family and says they can reach out to her.
