LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington police are investigating a homicide after police say the man broke into a home in the downtown area.

Police initially got a call just after midnight Thursday about a suspicious person knocking on doors on Ohio Street, just north of downtown. When they responded, people on the scene told police there was a break-in. Police then found the man's body.

The Fayette County Coroner's Office says 40-year-old Terrence McGhee died. The manner of death has been ruled a homicide.

Four other adults were inside the home at the time and we're told they are cooperating with the police.

No one has been charged or is in custody at this point. Police described the scene as an "all hands on deck" situation.

The coroner's office, as well as the K-9, robbery-homicide, and forensics units were all among the response.

Anyone with information that may be helpful is asked to contact the police.
