Lexington police arrested a man after they said he shot a driver at Appian Way and Armstrong Mill Road on Wednesday.
Michael Goode was arrested around 6 p.m. Wednesday, police Lt. Jackie Newman said.
At about 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, a man in a silver Dodge Charger stopped at a red light behind a gold Nissan Maxima. The man got out of the car, approached the Maxima and shot three times in the air and twice into the vehicle, police said.
Newman said the victim drove to the 3500 block of Buckhorn Drive and sought help. The victim, who sustained one gunshot wound, did not cooperate with police before leaving the hospital, Newman said.
Newman said a witness followed the Charger and helped police track Goode and the car to Goode’s girlfiend’s house in the 3700 block of Camelot Drive. Newman said Goode admitted to the shooting. He was lodged in the Fayette County jail on a charge of first-degree assault.
