Lexington police are investigating a fatal shooting that took place about 1:45 a.m. Sunday at Seventh and Dakota streets.
Authorities are withholding the name of the victim, who they have identified only as a 31-year-old man, pending notification of family members, according to the Fayette County Coroner. The man, who was shot multiple times, died about 2:15 a.m. at the University of Kentucky Hospital, the coroner's office said in a statement. His body has been sent to Frankfort for an autopsy.
Lt. Dean Marcum of Lexington police said details are "still sketchy," and police have no suspects at this time.
Marcum said anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police at (859) 258-3600.
