LMPD: Man found shot may have been killed during a robbery

LMPD said the death of a 50-year-old man found shot could be tied to a robbery.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The victim in Monday's deadly shooting in the Shawnee neighborhood has been identified as 50-year-old David Boggs.

Thursday during a media briefing, LMPD interim chief Robert Schroeder said Bogg's death could be connected to a robbery. 

"We have seen the various sales websites, whether it be the one you mentioned or a variety of others that can be used as tools for people to be robbed, and I think that's what you're looking at there. Probably a robbery that went bad," Schroeder said.

Second Division officers responded to a Shot Spotter call in the 600 block of South 40th Street around 5:30 p.m. on Monday where they found Boggs.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police haven't shared any suspect information.

If you have any information, you are asked to call the Anonymous Tip Line at 574-LMPD.

The Homicide Unit is investigating.
