LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Homicide detectives are looking for suspects after a man was shot and killed late Wednesday night. 

It happened around 10:30 p.m. near the corner of Chestnut and Shelby Streets. 

People in the area say they heard at least three gunshots followed by screams in the otherwise quiet neighborhood. 

When police arrived, they found the body of Dewan Booker, 41, on the ground with at least one gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:30 p.m. of a gunshot wound.

Investigators spent the night talking to potential witnesses, but say they need more cooperation. One man we talked to didn't want to go on camera, but says he heard arguing right before the gunshots.

Others are still shocked to learn what happened so close to home.

"I just thought I heard some firecrackers and the next thing I know, I come to the door and I said well maybe it's not firecrackers, maybe it's gunshots," said Janice, who lives nearby. "They said somebody got killed and I was like, wow, not on this street, it's too quiet."

There are no suspects in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD. All calls are anonymous.
