LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- LMPD is investigating a fatal shooting near Indian Trail Elementary School.

Police said the call came in about 11:45 p.m. Tuesday to the 5600 block of Carolyn Way near Poplar Level Road. LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley said a man believed to be in his 30s was found outside a home. He was taken to University Hospital, where he died. 

Police are waiting for the results of an autopsy to determine his official cause of death. Smiley said  officers suspect foul play.

Anthony Melton, who lives down the street, said he is shocked to see violence in the neighborhood.

"We've seen them, we've heard them, we've seen other families talk about them, but with this being four houses down, it does draw a red flag for all of us here," Melton said.

LMPD has not made any arrests.
