Police are investigating a rash of shootings in Lexington on Saturday morning that left four men injured, one with a serious wound to his neck.
Lexington police Lt. Jackie Newman said that three shootings in one night is unusual but that the violence does not appear to be related. The police are not releasing the names of any of the injured.
The first shooting happened 2 a.m. on East Second Street at Eastern Avenue, but the man who was shot did not cooperate with officers, Newman said. His injuries were not life-threatening.
Around 4:30 a.m., a man was shot in the neck in the 1600 block of Gerald Drive. Police are looking for four suspects in that shooting, but no other information was immediately available.
Later, police found a man who was shot in the leg at 1245 Centre Parkway around 10 a.m. A second man later came to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm. Newman said those two men may have been involved in the same incident. Both had non-life threatening injuries.
