Local resident reacts after deadly shooting at apartment complex

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Bowling Green Police Department is conducting a homicide investigation at the Muse apartments after a shooting Sunday night.

Officers arrived to the scene around 10 p.m. for an assault in progress and identified the victim as Ayanna Morgan, a 21-year-old female, according to police.

The BGPD says it believes Morgan was in a brief struggle before the incident. Morgan, a WKU student, was airlifted to a Nashville trauma center for treatment.

Detectives are working to locate surveillance video and speak with residents who can help determine the suspect.

An eye witness said, “We heard a popping sound because our window was cracked. We were looking out the window and saw all the police cars here in the parking lot. I just hope we get safety around here, I feel like everyone deserves safety.”

Police say Morgan died early Monday morning in the hospital. Anyone with additional information is urged to call the police department.
