Lakeland, FL -  Lakeland Police responded to a shooting earlier this morning at 1232 N. Virginia Ave.  

When they arrived on scene, they found 24-year-old Denard Joe lying in the driveway with a gunshot wound to the chest.   

Joe reportedly told officers that two unknown, black males approached him as he arrived home, and that is when multiple shots were fired. 

CIS detectives later learned that Joe is a club promoter, and he just arrived home when the incident occurred. 

EMS transferred Joe to Lakeland Regional Medical Center, where he is now listed in stable condition.

Police believe the suspects may have been attempting to rob Joe.

They continue to investigate, and they do not have anyone in custody at this time. 

Police say Joe was also the victim of an armed carjacking in April of 2011, in which he shot and killed 19-year-old Aaron Sconiers after he tapped on Joe's car window and pointed a gun at him. 

10 News will continue with updates as they become available.
