Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Gunfire outside a Shively strip club killed a man early today.

Shively Police were called to the Dollhouse Gentlemen's Club on Seventh Street Road just after 2 a.m..

When they arrived, they found 37-year-old Terrance Smith dead in the parking lot from a gunshot wound to the head.

Police say 29-year-old Tony Whitfield has been arrested and charged with one count of murder in connection with the case.
