LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- Earlier on Thursday morning, the Louisville Metro Police Department responded to a call that two men were found shot inside of a car when they arrived at the Sleep Inn off Preston Highway near Phillips Lane.

According to police, both men were taken to a local hospital where one man later died and the other has non-life threatening injuries.

Police do not believe these men were guests at the Sleep Inn. LMPD said the shooting actually occurred in the 6100 block of Guardian Court. 

LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell says "Apparently, these individuals drove here to the hotel, and police were called here. Certainly, anyone with information can call 574-LMPD."

The investigation continues and there are no suspects at this time, according to LMPD.
