One person was injured and another killed Monday at Campus View Condominiums in Lexington, where residents described hearing yelling and multiple gunshots about 3:45 p.m.
A vehicle stopped later on Versailles Road near Terrace View Court was tied to the shooting, police Lt. Matt Brotherton said.
A 19-year-old male victim died at 4:23 p.m. at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital from a gunshot wound, said the Fayette County coroner in a news release. His identity was not provided. The autopsy is to be completed Tuesday at the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Frankfort.
Never miss a local story.
Resident Lucas Johnson, 25, and Liz Mann, 23, remembered hearing a woman yelling outside to someone to get out of her car.
“It started escalating, more and more yelling,” said Johnson, who lives on first floor. “Then it quieted down and we started hearing gunshots. Sounded like an entire clip was unloaded. We stayed inside. We weren’t sure what to do.”
Johnson and Mann did not see what happened. Johnson said he had never heard of anything similar happening at Campus View previously.
The building is in the 1000 block of South Broadway, across from the Sonic restaurant and not far from Cook Out Restaurant, where a shootout killed 15-year-old Trinity Gay in October.
The two gunshot victims had some sort of previous relationship, and police determined that there was no “further risk to anyone else,” Brotherton said.
Police are trying to determine what happened before charging anyone, Brotherton said.
