LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Dozens gathered Sunday night on the very spot thirty-two year old Antoinette Finch was shot to death less than twenty four hours earlier.

Family members said a group of females drove up in a car Saturday night, October 12, started a scuffle with Finch, then shot her. Sunday's vigil was not only to remember the one lost, but to also ask for help in finding her killer.

Community organizer, Christopher 2X, organized the candlelight vigil that attracted dozens of friends, neighbors and the very family members that watched in horror as a young mother died.

"Her son, her oldest son, standing beside us, he had to watch his mother lose her life last night. Her husband was right here in this spot trying to resuscitate her, trying to have a glimmer of hope of being with her for another day physically. It's not going to happen."

Antoinette's sister Tracy Finch, is praying for justice to come soon.

"Antoinette, she was loved by everybody. She would give her last to friends, family, anybody in need. We're out here today just for justice. For somebody to step forward and help us to closure on this situation."

Finch leaves behind a husband and three children. As of Sunday evening, no arrests have been made. Anyone with information in this case is asked to call the anonymous police tip line at 574-LMPD.
