LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Metro Police Department is investigating a shooting that happened in Beechmont Thursday morning that left one man dead.
Jefferson County's coroner confirmed that 61-year-old Paul Archer was the man killed outside of Parkwood Apartments at 4612 Southern Parkway.
A neighbor who wants to remain anonymous told WHAS11 that he heard five gunshots around 3:15 a.m. He said when rushed outside, he found Archer near a dumpster. He then ran back inside his apartment to call 911.
The neighbor said Archer was a quiet man who didn’t bother anyone. He believes the 61-year-old was simply throwing away trash when the shooting happened.
“I feel sad because this is a 60-something-year-old man. And, you know, people nowadays, they don’t have no respect for nobody. They will pull out a gun and shoot people for nothing,” he said.
LMPD said Archer died at the scene. The department is now investigating the shooting as a homicide.
Officers don't have any suspects yet. If you have any information, call the LMPD's anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD (5673).
