LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One person has been shot and killed in west Louisville.

It happened just after 8 p.m. in the 2800 block of West Market Street in the Russell neighborhood.

The body of a black male was found lying on the ground on the sidewalk outside a home near the Dairy Mart at 28th and Market Streets. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

"I'm thinking this is one of my nephews or nieces. I don't know," said Donald Leslie, who lives near the scene. "This is a cry out. That's all you can do is cry out. You can't do nothing about it."

Neighbors tell WDRB News they heard up to 12 gunshots. The victim had been shot several times.

"I've been living out here all my life, and I ain't never seen this much killing in my neighborhood," Leslie added. This is where I grew up. This is where I live. I have never seen this much killing. Somebody gotta stop the violence. Somebody's gotta do something about it."

LMPD says this is the 94th homicide in Louisville in 2016.

No arrests have been made in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD Tip Line at 574-LMPD.
