Lexington police are investigating a shooting in the Winburn neighborhood that sent one man to a hospital Thursday.
The victim, who was not identified, was shot in the lower left side of his torso, police said. He was taken into emergency surgery at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, police Lt. Mario Russo said.
On Thursday evening, Sgt. Mike Wright said the victim's injury did not appear to be life-threatening. His condition was not available.
Police were searching Thursday for two men who reportedly were involved in the shooting. Investigators said they did not know the identities of the two men, but one man was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt; the other was wearing a blue and white bubble coat.

The shooting happened shortly before 8:30 a.m. outside Fox Run Apartments, 1840 McCullough Drive off Winburn Drive.
The victim was sitting in the driver's seat of a Ford Mustang when one of the men fired a handgun from outside the car. A woman who was in the passenger seat was not injured, police said. The two men were seen running north, toward Ward Drive, Russo said.
The victim and the woman walked into the fenced-in complex, where the man collapsed on the stoop of an apartment where a resident called 911. The victim was conscious and speaking when officers arrived, Russo said.
Witnesses told police the victim, who lives in the Versailles Road area, was at the apartment to give the woman a ride to work. He apparently did not know the alleged shooter or the other man, Russo said.
Police had not established a motive for the shooting Thursday morning.
"Right now, it's still under investigation as far as what was transpiring at this scene," he said.
Shortly after the shooting, investigators blocked off a large area of McCullough Drive outside the apartments. Three cars were parked inside the crime-scene tape, including the victim's car.
The tape blocked off the single entrance into the complex, preventing anyone from coming or going as officers collected evidence and spoke with potential witnesses.
The Mustang was towed so police could do further testing.
