A 15-year-old boy was shot Tuesday night in Lexington by someone who was driving through a neighborhood near downtown.
The boy was standing with a group in the area of Sixth Street and Shropshire Avenue when someone fired shots out of a moving vehicle, striking him and a nearby unoccupied car, Lexington police Comdr. Brad Ingram said. The boy’s injuries weren’t considered life-threatening.
No other injuries were reported in the shooting, which occurred near William Wells Brown Elementary School. No one was inside the school at the time, Ingram said.
The boy was treated at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital and was unable to give police a description of the vehicle or the shooter, Ingram said.
