Metro investigating homicide in SW valley

Metro Police are investigating an apparent shooting that left a man dead in a home in the southwest valley early Thursday morning.

Dispatchers received a call around 12:19 a.m. from a resident of the neighborhood near Durango Drive and Blue Diamond Road who had heard banging on a neighbor's door as well as subsequent gunshots. When officers arrived to do a welfare check, they found the front door kicked in, said Metro Lt. Ted Glaude. Officers entered the home and found a man in his early 20s with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The investigation continues, Glaude said.
