LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man died after a shooting in the Highlands neighborhood early Sunday morning.

Louisville Metro Police said they responded to a shooting on the 1000 block of Bardstown Road, near Baxter Avenue and Highland Avenue, just after 4 a.m.

Police found who had been shot multiple times. He was taken to University of Louisville Hospital, where he later died. 

The Jefferson County Coroner's Office identified the victim on Monday as 29-year-old Derrick Robinson II. 

It's the third fatal shooting in that area of the Highlands in the last two months. 

In June, a 27-year-old man was shot near Akiko's and Nowhere Bar, along with a man running toward a crowded O'Shea's Irish Pub with a "long rifle style firearm in the ready position" allegedly planning to shoot bargoers.

In the early morning hours of July 4, a Louisville man was shot and killed in the 900 block of Baxter Avenue.

A woman who shops along Bardstown Road isn't surprised by the shooting.

"I live in the Newburg area, so this isn't anything new to me," Fatima Matanovic said. "I try to stay out of places where it's more likely to happen, but other than that, we have to live."

She blames the uptick of shootings throughout Louisville on the gun wielders' parents.

“I want the parents to take responsibility of raising their children in a different manner. This is not the governor or the mayor’s fault," Matanovic said. "This is a generation without parenting.”

Police do not have any suspects in the shooting on Sunday morning.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the tip line at 574-LMPD. You can remain anonymous.
