LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - LMPD is investigating a fatal shooting at the corner of 24th St. and Elliott Ave.  It was the second of two fatal shootings Halloween night in the Russell neighborhood.

Police first got the call about the shooting at 11:57 Monday night. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man who had been shot and was unresponsive.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. LMPD says the victim is a black male in his 20's.

LMPD's homicide detectives are now investigating.  Another man was found shot to death outside a convenience store at 28th and Market just four hours earlier.  Police say they are not ruling out whether the two shootings could be connected. 

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the LMPD Tip Line at 502-574 LMPD (5673).

This would be Louisville's 95th homicide of 2016.
