GADSDEN, AL (WBRC) -

Gadsden police are investigating the city's third homicide in one week.

The latest deadly shooting happened at a home on 1220 Kentucky Ave. and Chandler Street in east Gadsden, a few blocks away from Gadsden State Community College.

A neighbor tells FOX6 he heard about nine shots fired in succession around 1 a.m. At the time, he said he didn't think anything about it. He later found out his neighbor was dead.

The neighbor described the victim as a nice guy who wasn't any trouble. The victim's name has not yet been released.

Police are expected to release more information about the case later today.

The other deadly shooting happened Friday night on the east end of the Meighan Boulevard bridge. Two men, 51-year-old Billy Baker and 35-year-old Jobari Player, were killed after another car drove up next to theirs and opened fire.
