WEST POINT, KY (WAVE) - The victim of a shooting who was found by the owner of the Knob Creek Gun Range has been identified.

Kenny Sumner, owner of the gun range, said he was closing up when he heard four loud, quick gunshots near the entrance of his business. He thought it was someone trespassing but when he went to check it out, he found McStoots instead.

She was scantily clad, he said, and crawling on a gravel road. He scooped her up, called 911 and took her to Southwest Hospital.

McStoots was pronounced dead shortly after they arrived at the hospital. Police said she was from Hardin County, but had been living in Louisville before she died.

The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office is investigating her death as a homicide.
