A 16-year-old boy was shot once in the arm and once in the leg on Danielle Lane, and hours later another male was shot near downtown Lexington on Thursday night.
Police were called to the first shooting, on the 2500 block of Danielle Lane, at about 6:50 p.m., said Lexington police Lt. Jackie Newman.
The second shooting happened at about 10:45 p.m., when callers reported a dozen or more shots fired in the area of Wilson Street and Curley Avenue.
Minutes later, a man with a gunshot wound showed up a few blocks away, outside Carson’s Food & Drink on East Main Street, according to scanner traffic. Blood spattered the sidewalk outside the restaurant as police investigated.
Never miss a local story.
At the intersection of Curley and Wilson, officers with flashlights found what appeared to be bullet holes in a car and the side of a house.
Information about the victim’s condition was not immediately available.
The injuries of the teen shot on Danielle Lane were not life-threatening.
“He is being uncooperative with us at this point, so we’re not sure what led up to the shooting,” Newman said.
She said the victim knew the people who shot him. She said the incident began inside a residence and moved outside, where the teen was shot.
She said police were looking for two males between the ages of 16 and 18 who left in a beige passenger car.
