Lexington police are asking the public to come forward if they have any information related to a shooting Tuesday night that killed 46-year-old father David Kelm.

A Lexington man died Tuesday night following a shooting in Masterson Station, according to the Fayette County Coroner’s Office.

Police were called to the 500 block of Skyview Lane at about 9:30 p.m. after reports of a shooting, according to Lexington police. The victim was shot through the back door of the home, according to WKYT, the Herald-Leader’s reporting partner.

The victim, 46-year-old David Kelm, died at 10:22 p.m. at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, the coroner said. An autopsy is pending, according to the coroner.

The shooting occurred at Kelm’s home, police Sgt. Donnell Gordon said. Kelm was a father with at least one child, he said.

Information on the suspect has not been released, but police told WKYT the shooting was not thought to have been random.

Kelm becomes the eighth homicide victim this year in Lexington.

Investigators are asking anyone who lives in the area and has surveillance equipment to check for anything suspicious between about 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. the night of the shooting, Gordon said.

Anyone with information related to the shooting is asked to call police at 859-258-3600.
