A teenager was shot in the leg Sunday night in a parking lot at 1101 Centre Parkway.
Lexington officers responding to a report of shots fired in the area were flagged down by a woman driving a red car who said she was taking a shooting victim to the hospital, police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.
While waiting for an ambulance, the victim told police he was in the parking lot about 9:15 p.m. and was shot by a white male who fled in a purple minivan, Roberts said.
The victim, shot in the lower left leg, walked toward Milano Street, where he found the woman who then flagged down the police.
He was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, Roberts said. No other details were immediately available.
