Metro police on the scene of the shooting in the 1800 block of Frankfort Ave.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The victim of a fatal shooting on Frankfort Avenue has been identified. According to the coroner, Jahmal Lestrade, 32, died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.
Lestrade and another man were shot around 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Community activist Christopher 2X said Lestrade is the brother of a 17-year-old who was shot in a robbery-homicide in a Kingston Avenue apartment back in December. Police are not saying if the two are related.
To think that the violence has made its way to the Clifton neighborhood is an uncomfortable thought for those nearby. Jason Stamps lives next door to where the shooting happened.
"It was kind of crazy," said Stamps, "I mean you don't expect to hear that your neighbor has been shot."
Stamps said he no longer feels safe and wants his apartment complex to beef up security.
Kim Baldwin, an art instructor at KAS Gallery, said the news is hard to believe.
"If it was a bad neighborhood it would not be as shocking," said Baldwin, "but the fact that its outside ... you see people walking outside with their dogs and their kids."
Many local businesses in the area are closed on Mondays. KAS Gallery is hopeful that people still feel safe coming to work.
"I don't think it's going to hurt business and I'm sure not worried about coming to work," Baldwin said.
Louisville Metro Police are still investigating the shootings and have not named any suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD Crime Tip Line at 574-LMPD (5673). All calls to the Crime Tip Line are anonymous.
At last check, the surviving victim was in stable condition. No funeral arrangements have been made for Lestrade as of yet.
