LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Fayette County coroner has identified the victim shot and killed in a Lexington neighborhood Wednesday morning

The coroner said 35-year-old Lowell Anthony Washington, of Louisville, died at about 6 a.m. Wednesday after he was shot multiple times.

"I was actually asleep when a bunch of pops fired off," a neighbor told LEX 18. "It actually sounded like someone was beating the wall with a broom or something."

Two other people were also injured in the shooting, Lexington police said. Their injured are not life-threatening.

Police were called just after 5 a.m. after a report of shots fired on Dalton Court near the Eastland area.
