Lexington officers saw the man accused in a homicide and double shooting toss an object that turned out to be a 9 mm handgun that matched shell casings and a bullet from the killing, according to WKYT.
During a preliminary hearing Thursday, a detective described evidence linking Jermaine Anderson, 21, to the June 7 slaying on Whitney Avenue, according to WKYT. Montez Graves and Freddy Spillman were shot inside the car. Graves died.
Anderson matched a caller's description, and he ran when officers tried to stop him at the scene, according to testimony WKYT reported. He was seen throwing an item, which turned out to be the gun, to the ground. The gun matched shell casings at the scene and a slug from Graves. Anderson, who's been charged with assault, murder and other related offenses, admitted to being in the car but said he didn't fire shots. The case was sent to the grand jury for review of the charges.
Graves' uncle died after another shooting the same night a few blocks away.
