Victim ID'd, suspect arrested in East Gray shooting

LMPD is investigating Louisville's latest homicide, but they already have a suspect in custody.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A victim has been identified hours after an early shooting in the Phoenix Hill neighborhood Tuesday.

Coroner Barbara Weakley said Dustin Marcum, 25, died from a gunshot wound.

Police responded to East Gray and Campbell Streets around 7:30 a.m.

That’s when police say they discovered Marcum shot inside a home. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police do have a suspect in his early 50’s and say he and Marcum knew each other.

“Apparently some type of altercation took place. We believe that they were friends but unfortunately, this took a very, terrible tragic turn,” LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell said.

It’s not clear if the Marcum or the suspect lived at the home. Police say they’re still working to figure out that and if anyone else was in the home when the shooting happened.
