Police are investigating Sunday after a man was shot and killed at his apartment in west Little Rock — the city's second homicide in as many days.

Lt. Steve McClanahan, a spokesman for Little Rock police, said Robert Ryan Hunter was shot at the Shadow Lake Apartments at 13111 W. Markham St. There is no suspect in custody, he said.

Officers responded to the call sometime after 10:30 a.m. When they arrived at Apartment 269 in Building 27, they found a woman screaming that her boyfriend had been shot, McClanahan said.

In a news release, police listed the apartment where they found Hunter, 26, as his home address.

McClanahan said Hunter was shot multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene.

The homicide is the 26th of the year in Little Rock. McClanahan said this year's total is greater than the number of homicides at this time in 2015.

Back in August, the apartment complex was the scene of another shooting, in which police said a woman shot her boyfriend in the leg.

The death was the second reported within 24 hours in Little Rock. Police are also investigating after finding a man shot to death Saturday night on Pinewood Drive.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette's Hunter Field contributed information to this report.

    Second shooting at this complex the past couple of weeks, this one proved fatal. This place used to be a nice upscale apartment complex. What happened?
