The Jessamine County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting Thursday afternoon that injured a motorist on Burr Oak Drive in Forest Hills Estates, off U.S. 68.
The motorist, a 40-year-old man driving a truck, did not suffer a gunshot wound, but he was struck in the left eye by glass from the shattered driver's side window, Jessamine County Chief Deputy Allen Peel said.
The victim also had some facial injuries that were not life-threatening, according to a release from the sheriff's office. His name was not released.
The driver and a passenger refused transport to a hospital but were treated by the Jessamine County Emergency Medical Services.

The shooting, in which multiple shots were fired, happened about 1:30 p.m. Thursday as the driver and his passenger were leaving the Forest Hills Estates neighborhood. As they approached the intersection with U.S. 68, shots were fired at them. The driver's side door was struck several times.
The victim was able to drive back to his house on Chinkapin Drive, Peel said. No arrests had been made as of late Thursday afternoon, Peel said, but Lexington police were looking for possible suspects.
The shooting is thought to be related to a domestic disturbance reported Wednesday at Hobby Lobby in Brannon Crossing Centre in northern Jessamine County, Peel said.
