AURORA, Ill. — Police said Monday they are, “working around-the-clock” after a teenage girl was shot and killed inside a home on Aurora’s near west side over the weekend.
Jasmine Noble, 15, was found dead early Sunday morning in a home on the 400 block of Florida Avenue on Aurora’s near west side.
The circumstances of the shooting are still unclear. Family members say the teen went to a party Saturday night, and never came home.
Neighbors who live near the house where Noble was found said it sounded like there was a party there Saturday night, with dozens of people in and out.
One neighbor said she heard a single gunshot after midnight. When police arrived, they found Noble shot and killed inside. Her family says she was left for dead on the couch.
“Right now this is an active death investigation with suspicious circumstances … but right now we can’t release much information because it is an active investigation,” said Paris Lewbel, Aurora Police.
Noble was a student at the East Aurora Extension Campus.
The school district released a statement that said, in part: “Our thoughts and sympathies are with Jasmine’s family, friends, and all those who loved her.”
Aurora police have no suspects in custody, and are asking anyone with information to call them directly.
There’s also a reward up to $5,000 for any information that leads to an arrest.
