Man found shot Thursday near nightclub

A man was shot multiple times in the torso early Thursday outside a club in North Lexington, Lexington police said.

Ludger Janvier, 32, was taken to University of Kentucky Hospital after Lexington police found him injured near Russell Cave and New Circle roads about 2:45 a.m.

He was listed in critical condition Thursday morning.

It appeared that the man was shot outside Diva's Gentleman's Club on Russell Cave Road, but he was on a nearby corner, Officer Ann Gutierrez, a Lexington police spokeswoman, said.

Gutierrez said police were called to the club twice for disorders before Janvier was found injured. Investigators don't think those incidents were related to the shooting.

Police do not have any suspects in the case and request that anyone with more information call (859) 258-3700.
