LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Homicide detectives are investigating after a fatal shooting at 20th and Chestnut Streets in the Russell neighborhood.

Update: The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office says Michael Dippel, 30, was pronounced dead at 11:25 p.m. due to several gunshot wounds.

Police say it happened around 11:15 Sunday night. Officers say someone heard gunshots and called 911.

When police responded to 20th and Chestnut, they found Dippel shot to death outside an SUV.

Police say they’re not sure if Dippel was driving the SUV or had even been inside it. They say it's too early to tell if the shooting was related to several others over the weekend.

Officers are looking for suspects and ask that anyone with information call 574-LMPD.
