Lexington police were searching for two men who were involved in a shooting late Wednesday morning at an apartment complex on Sterlington Road near Alumni Drive.
The victim was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Lt. Raymond Roller said. Roller did not release the identity of the victim.
The shooting happened about 11:21 a.m. in the 2000 block of Sterlington Road. Responding to a report of shots being fired, Roller said, officers arrived at the home and found a 27-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the leg.
Two witnesses told police the victim had been involved in an altercation with two other men before the shooting. The two men left in a tan Ford pickup truck. Roller said investigators received conflicting descriptions of the truck, but they thought it was an F-150.
Never miss a local story.
Police were told that the shooter, who is about 5-foot-9, was wearing a light colored T-shirt and shorts. Witnesses did not give a clear description of the second man, Roller said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Lexington police at (859) 258-3600.
