LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Louisville Metro Police are currently investigating a homicide in the 1800 block of Frankfort Avenue.

Officers responded to shooting at the Crescent Run Apartment complex around 12:30 p.m. and found two men suffering from gunshot wounds.

Residents say one of the victims is a resident of the complex. Kenneth Cox lives at the complex and says he heard screams for help. "This guy is on the stairs yelling, “Help! Help! Call the police I've been shot," Cox said.

Cox said he stayed by the victim's side until police arrived.

Both victims were transported to University Hospital to be treated for their injuries but shortly this afternoon, one of the men died from his injuries.

Police are waiting to talk to the other victim as a part of their investigation.

"Right now, it's just too early to tell what did happen or what led to this today," LMPD spokeswoman Carey Klain said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 574-LMPD.
