UPDATE: LMPD investigating fatal shooting in Algonquin neighborhood
The shooting happened just after 8:30 a.m. near Algonquin Parkway and Seventh Street.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police are investigating a fatal shooting in the Algonquin neighborhood.
MetroSafe confirms officers were called to a report of a person shot near Algonquin Parkway at McCloskey Avenue just after 8:30 a.m. LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell says that's where officers found the victim, a black male who appears to be in his early 20s dead from apparent multiple gunshot wounds. Mitchell says he was found in a yard at the La Salle Apartments.
At the time of this writing, the coroner had not yet released the name of the victim. Several of the victim's family members were at the scene Wednesday morning.
Police say they don't yet know what led up to the shooting or who pulled the trigger, but Mitchell did say that officers responded to the area Tuesday night -- and they are looking for a possible connection between that incident and the shooting.
"I believe there was an altercation last night," Mitchell said. "I don't know if it stems as a result of this happening today, but we were in the area last night."
At this time, police do not have any suspects in custody. Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 502-574-LMPD. All calls are anonymous.
