Police Try To Identify Murder Victim

Lexington police are investigating the city's first murder of the year.

Police were called to the 1900 block of Cambridge drive at 5:58pm Wednesday.

That's when they found a Hispanic man who'd been shot several times in the abdomen.

The victim was transported to the University of Kentucky Medical Center where he died a short time later.

Investigators are asking for help from the public in figuring out the victim's name.

Police have not named any suspects in the case.

If you have any information on the victim, you're asked to call Lexington Police or the Fayette County Coroner's Office.
