Police say 2 men are dead and a third man is in the hospital after a shooting in Danville.

And police are looking for the man who they believe did it.

Officers were called around 4:30 Monday afternoon to reports of gunfire at High and 5th Streets.

They found a man there who had been shot.

The victim told police he went to visit a friend at a nearby home, and when he walked in, he found an armed man holding two other men at gunpoint.

The victim says that's when he tried to get away.

Danville Police Chief Tony Gray says, "He tried to exit the house by jumping through a window and was fired upon. There was more gun shots and the hispanic male left in a blue Chevy pickup."

Police say they later found two men dead inside the home.

The third victim who survived was flown to UK Hospital.

No word on his condition.

Police were still looking for the armed man late Monday night, who they say took off in a blue chevy pickup with tan, silver or light brown molding.
