LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro police say a shooting in the California neighborhood has left one person dead and two others injured.

It happened in the 2200 block of Greenwood Avenue just before 1 p.m. Thursday. All of three victims were taken to University Hospital where one of them died a short time later.

The person who died has been identified as Brandon Lewis, 29, of Louisville. His cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds to the body, according to the Jefferson County Coroner's Office.

Dwight Mitchell, an LMPD spokesman, said detectives are canvassing the area but they do not have a motive or suspects.

Police said neighbors believe an automatic weapon was involved.

On Monday, Chizvest Summers Jr. was killed three blocks away at California Park. In May, police said there was an attempted drive-by shooting at the same Greenwood intersection.

"There appears to be nothing that connects them," Mitchell said. "Again, it's an unfortunate situation that we're down here on, and we've said this many times, over 80 times this year already. Our prayers go out to the families of the victims."

Anyone with information is asked to call the anonymous police tip line at (502) 574-LMPD (5673).
