LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Cameron Martin, 27 years old, has died after being found shot on a Lexington street. This is the second day in a row that Lexington Police have investigated violence on Ohio Street.

For the second day in a row, officers are investigating on Ohio Street, just north of downtown Lexington. Officers tell LEX 18 that Thursday's homicide and Friday's shooting are not connected, but did happen within a block from one another.

Just after midnight Friday, police say they found Martin in the road who had been shot. He was taken to the hospital where he later died. Police say that there was a group of people fighting in the road, prior to gunshots being fired. Several vehicles parked on the street were also hit by gunfire, but no one else was hurt.

Officers say they do not have a suspect in Friday's shooting.

If you were in the area and saw anything, you're asked to give Lexington Police a call.
