Lexington police continue to investigate the shooting and wounding of a teenage boy late Monday afternoon.
Police said someone dropped off the 16-year-old boy at University of Kentucky's Good Samaritan Hospital about 5:45 p.m. Monday.
The victim had a gunshot wound to his elbow, officers said.
Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said Tuesday that officers received a report of shots fired on Ash Street shortly before the teen showed up at the hospital. Police went to Ash Street but found no one, Roberts said.
Police Lt. Eddie Hart said Monday evening that officers checked with local hospitals after the Ash Street report. That's how they learned about the wounded teen, he said.
Hart said Monday night that the boy refused to say how he was shot or who did it.
