LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One person was shot Wednesday night in the Shawnee neighborhood.

Police say a male was shot just after 6 p.m. in an alley near 43rd and Market Streets. He suffered one gunshot wound to the chest and was found lying on the ground outside of the Outcast Motorcycle Club Kentucky Clubhouse. 

"He was alert and conscious," LMPD Major Jimmy Harper said. "We are hoping he will be able to tell us more about what occurred back here in the alley. It does appear that maybe he was just cutting through the alley and was accosted there in the alley and, unfortunately, the perpetrator decided to use a gun and shoot him for no reason."

The victim was taken to University Hospital, but there's no word on his condition. Police say there were no witnesses and, at this point, they have no suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD.
