A homicide investigation is underway in Lexington.

Police say a man was shot around 9:30 Wednesday morning in the 1800 block of Augusta Drive.

They believe the shooting happened outside and the victim made his way to a nearby apartment building for help. He was taken to the hospital, but officials say has since died.

The coroner's office says the victim has been identified as 55-year-old Lowell Anthony Johnson.

The owner of the apartment building says Johnson lived there.

While police tell us they do not have anyone in custody, they say there were people in the area at the time of the shooting and hope someone comes forward with information.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police at (859) 258-3600.
