Police are investigating a possible homicide in Lexington Saturday evening.
Police were called out just after 5:30 to 186 Simpson Avenue after getting a call of someone hearing gunshots. When they got there, they found a 48-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds.
The victim was taken to UK Hospital where he later died. His name has not been released.
A neighbor who spoke to LEX 18 thought the police activity was for a drug bust or someone injured and didn't realize how severe the situation was until the Mobile Crime Lab arrived on scene.
"That is what concerned me even more," said Bobbie Smith. "When I went on down the street I noticed it was a neighbor that we've known for four years and that something had happened."
An autopsy will be performed Sunday, the Coroner's Office said.
