LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police are investigating after a man was fatally shot at the Beecher Terrace housing complex Tuesday afternoon.
The victim has not yet been identified, but police believe he was in his 30s. Police say he was found on the ground in the middle of the street.
According to MetroSafe dispatchers, it happened about 1:30 p.m. at Fisk Court and Wilberforce Court near south 10th Street. We're told the victim, a man who appears to be a man in his 30s, has died.
A witness told WDRB News he believes this may have been a drive-by shooting because he says he heard about eight to ten gunshots and saw a car speed away.
LMPD spokeswoman Alicia Smiley told us it's too early to know if this was a drive-by shooting.
Police are still looking for suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD (574-5673). Callers can remain anonymous.
