LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The victim of a deadly Friday morning shooting at a Louisville convenience store has been identified.

The Jefferson County Coroner's Office says Quintezz Thompson, 26, died of a gunshot wound.

The shooting happened just after 4 a.m. Friday at Dino's Food Mart at 2601 West Broadway.

What's unique is that police didn't even have to be called out to the scene.

"A little bit after 4:00 Friday morning, our First Division officers were on routine patrol when they heard shots fired in the area of 26th and Broadway," said LMPD Spokesperson Alicia Smiley.

Investigators spent several hours talking to witnesses and even took two vehicles from the scene.

"We do believe that there were multiple shots fired. Whether or not they came from one specific weapon or from several weapons, we have not been able to determine," Smiley said.

The coroner identified the victim late Friday morning.

"He has two young children, one little boy who's almost a newborn and then a very young little girl almost at the age of 2," said community activist and family spokesperson Christopher 2X.

They must carry on now without their father, one day learning he was gunned down in the parking lot of this business.

"I woke up to a phone call saying there was a horrific shooting here," the manager of Dino's Food Mart who goes by Miss Lynn said.

The store manager says nothing like this has ever happened in her eight years working here.

"We don't have a lot of violence here. We know our customers by name, a majority of them," she said.

The property is brightly lit at night and inside, several cameras look for anything out of the ordinary and detectives hope that'll show who pulled the trigger.

Police are still looking for clues and any leads in the case. You're asked to call or text their anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD (5673).
