One man was shot multiple times Wednesday afternoon, and Lexington police said they have good leads in the search for the shooter.
Officers responded to a call about shots being fired on Dakota Street just north of West Seventh Street, police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. Shortly after 3:12 p.m., officers found a man lying face-down in the 700 block of Dakota Street. The victim, who was talking after the shooting, was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, Roberts said.
There were no eyewitnesses but police said there were reports of five or six shots.
"We think we've got some good leads" on the identity of the shooter, who fled on foot, Roberts said.
Never miss a local story.
Dakota Street was the scene of a stabbing last week, but Roberts said it was too soon to know if it was related to Wednesday's shooting.
