The victim's name was not known, but LMPD spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said he was a black man in his late teens or early 20s.

"There were no injuries to anyone else," she said. "At this point we do not have any suspects."

MetroSafe confirmed that the person was shot near the intersection of 12th and Hill streets. LMPD officers just happened to roll up on the scene and saw the person in the street at about 3 p.m.

Local media received an alert a short time later that the Homicide Unit was en route to the scene.

Metro Louisville is pacing toward a record number of homicides this year.

It's not clear what preceded the shooting.
