According to Rodriguez’s arrest slip, he was the 9-1-1 caller and stayed on the scene for police and EMS to arrive. Authorities say Rodriguez gave a statement in which he confessed to shooting the woman one time after pointing the gun at the back of her head.

Rodriguez allegedly admitted to calling several friends and his mother to come over and talk about what he’d done, before his mother told him to call 9-1-1, more than one hour after the shooting.

Rodriguez is charged with Murder and being housed in Louisville Metro Detention Center.
