LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Louisville Metro Police Department officers are investigating after a man shot and killed on Friday evening.

The shooting happened around 5:30 pm., according to LMPD Officer Beth Ruoff. Officers were called to Shibley Avenue on reports of shots fired. Once the victim was found, he died before he could be brought to the hospital.

“It was indicated there were multiple rounds fired,” Ruoff said. “We’ve seen that on multiple shoot scenes and homicide scenes we’re going out to. We’re seeing a substantial increase in the round count.”

The victim is said to have lived at the home where he was shot. His identity has not been released, nor has any suspect information.

Ruoff urged people with information to call the LMPD Anonymous Tip Line to provide any information on the shooting to investigators at (502) 574-LMPD.

“The anonymous tip line is truly anonymous,” Ruoff said. “You can provided license plates, very, very vivid descriptions, physical descriptors of people involved, tattoos, (or) marks.”
