A 20-year-old man died Saturday morning after he and three others were shot outside a convenience store.
Dwayne Johnson of Lexington was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound at 4:06 a.m. Saturday at University of Kentucky Hospital, according to the Fayette County coroner's office.
Johnson was shot in front of the Pak-n-Save at Third and Race streets at 3:37 a.m., the coroner's news release said. An autopsy was to be conducted in Frankfort on Saturday.
Lexington police have no suspects in the case, said Lt. Scott Blakely. Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Matt Brotherton at (859) 258-3700.

Blakely said the others shot were Anthony Burnett, Jamaur Yocum and Karlan Morton.
Morton had been released from UK Hospital by Saturday evening, and Burnett was in fair condition. Yocum was not at UK Hospital on Saturday afternoon, and his condition was unknown.
Johnson's sister, Whitney Johnson, said he had three children and one on the way.
"He was a great person," she said. "He did a lot for everybody."
Renota Durrah said Johnson "could make you smile on your worst day. No matter what kind of day he was having he was always smiling and joking."
Johnson said her family has few answers about what happened early Saturday.
All they know is, "some people were shooting, and he was one of the guys that got shot," she said.
She said one of the others who was shot, Morton, is a cousin.
In April 2004, Dontay Kendrick, 19, of Lexington also was shot at 3:37 a.m. just down from the Pak-n-Save.
Dominico L. Morbley and Quaynell D. King were convicted of manslaughter and wanton endangerment, respectively.
After King got into a fight with a man near the King Cobra night club, he and Morb ley got into a car. Morbley fired bullets into a crowd, and one of them hit Kendrick, prosecutors said.
