One of four women injured in a shooting Monday night on Scottsdale Circle died Tuesday.

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn has identified her as Kierra Green, 18, of Nicholasville. The medical examiner is scheduled to conduct an autopsy Wednesday in Frankfort. Ginn did not release any other details.

On Tuesday, police continued investigating the shooting but said they had little news to report.

Lt. Chris Van Brackel said Tuesday morning that police have made no arrests.

The shooting occurred at 10:39 p.m. Monday at 457 Scottsdale Circle, off Russell Cave Road, police said.

Three people were taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, and a fourth arrived at the hospital later in a private vehicle.

It was one of two shootings Monday in Lexington that injured five people. A man was grazed by bullets late Monday morning near a neighborhood food market on Georgetown Street.

Some people in the Scottsdale Circle neighborhood said they heard as many as 15 gunshots Monday night.

Police said Monday night that they weren't sure whether any or all of the four women lived at the address on Scottsdale Circle, or whether they were inside or outside the house when the shooting occurred.

Police asked that anyone with information contact the Division of Police at (859) 258-3600.
