LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A 4-year-old girl shot in the Park DuValle neighborhood was still in "grave" condition on Saturday, Louisville Metro Police said.

Family members identified the girl to WAVE 3 News as Ilanye Price.

The shooting was reported at 7:15 p.m. Friday at a home on Algonquin Parkway near 35th Street. Police initially considered taking the child to Kosair Children's Hospital in a squad car, later deciding to shut down more than 40 blocks of streets so an ambulance carrying the child could quickly get to the hospital.

Price's grandmother said the gun involved in the incident belonged to a teenager at the home.

WAVE 3 News received unconfirmed reports that another young child was responsible for the shooting. Dwight Mitchell, a police spokesman, would not confirm those reports, but said police were not looking for a shooter outside of the home.

"We're talking to witnesses at this point to get a better understanding of what happened," Mitchell told reporters Friday night.

There were other people inside the home when the shooting happened, Mitchell said.

Police closed one block of Algonquin Parkway during the investigation. They kept members of the media, including WAVE 3 News, close to a quarter-mile from the home, while other people were allowed to walk freely much closer to the scene.

After WAVE 3 News reported this online, police allowed the media to move closer.

The Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms task force -- announced after a series of homicides recently -- was in the area when the shooting happened and responded to the scene along with Metro Police officers, Mitchell said.
