A second victim in a triple shooting in May in Jessamine County has died, the Fayette County coroner has confirmed.
Zach Cawthorn, 27, died Wednesday from complications due to gunshot wounds at the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, according to the Fayette County coroner’s office.
The shooting occurred early May 12 near Bonded Links, a former motorcycle clubhouse that had been rented for a private party. Mark Boguszewski, 27, of Jefferson County, was found dead in tall grass near the club.
Cawthorn and the third victim were taken to UK Hospital. The name and condition of the third victim was never released.

The shooting was reported shortly before 2:30 a.m. in the commercial area off U.S. 27 commonly known as “the drag strip” because it’s a former racing venue. The strip is home to various businesses, including auto body shops and used-car lots.
As many as 50 people might have attended the party that night, Nicholasville police Sgt. Scott Harvey said.
The investigation remains open, and Nicholasville police ask that anyone with any information call 859-885-9467.
