People living in a central Kentucky apartment complex say they're concerned for their safety after a man was shot to death near a playground on the property.
The victim was found early Wednesday morning outside Hickory Hills Manor near East Main Street in Frankfort.
He has been identified as 25-year-old Jonathan Stewart.
Several people living at the apartment complex reported hearing several shots, but police say Stewart was only hit once.
Police say Stewart suffered a gunshot wound to the chest.
Once police arrived at the scene, neighbors crowded outside to see what was going on.
"The next thing I know, I can see through my sheers there, the police lights and the ambulance lights. I open the door, and I see this guy laying right here," Jill Goycochea, who lives nearby, said.
Police say Stewart died before he arrived at the Frankfort Regional Medical Center.
"He didn't talk much, he's soft-spoken, well-mannered, everything you would have liked in a guy. This is most definitely a shock, but we'll get through eventually", says his close friend Kameisha Bond.
Police are now looking for 28-year-old Marvin Boomer to interview about the shooting. They believe he may have information that will assist them.
"He's a black male who lives on Forest Hill Drive, is 5'10", 180 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair and is believed to be driving a gray Cutless or possibly a Monte Carlo", says Major Fred Deaton with Frankfort Police.
Police believe another man was with Marvin Boomer that may also have information about the shooting.
This isn't the first time a deadly shooting happened at that apartment complex.
In January 2008, police say Demetrius McClellon shot and killed Jonathan McFadden during a robbery.
McClellon, who was 17 at the time, later took a plea deal in the case and is serving 10 years in prison.
