LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man died after a fight in the Russell neighborhood Thursday, but the Louisville Metro Police Department isn't exactly sure how.

Officers responded to 10th Street and West Muhammad Ali Boulevard around 6:30 p.m. According to LMPD, a man in his 40s suffered a life-threatening injury and was taken to University Hospital, where he died.

"At this point, we do not believe it was a shooting," LMPD Spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said. "We're still uncertain, specifically, how he sustained that injury. We do believe he was involved in some sort of altercation here at the apartments."
