LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Another woman has died following a double shooting in Bullitt County that happened Monday morning.

Kristin Longaker, 27, died on Tuesday afternoon after being shot Monday morning around 8 a.m., according to a report from the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office.

Bullitt County deputies responded to Pitts Point Road around 8:20 in the morning, Chief Marcus Laytham said, following a shooting report after two women were spotted by a passerby on the side of the road. Deputies found Katelyn Rayman, 25, dead. Longaker was found and rushed to UofL Hospital for treatment.

Sheriff Walt Sholar said he believes the suspect is not from the area.

“We believe that it may well have been that whoever it was, was just looking for a place that didn’t have houses all around,” Sholar said.

The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office released details on a car they’re looking for as part of the homicide investigation, a silver 2002 Hyundai Elantra that has the Kentucky license plate number 579-AMN. It is suspected that the driver is dangerous and maybe armed.

Anyone who sees the car should immediately call 911 and keep their distance until officers arrive.

Sheriff Walt Sholar said people in the area are not believed to be in any additional danger.

“We haven’t had anybody or anything associated with this that appeared that there’s going to be a home invasion or anything of that nature associated with this crime,” Sholar said.

Longaker’s family set up a GoFundMe to help pay for her funeral. Donations can be made here.
