Lexington police were investigating a shooting that sent one man to the hospital Wednesday night when they found a second victim, another man who had been stabbed, officials said Thursday.

Police don't know whether the incidents that occurred in a north Lexington neighborhood are related, said Officer Ann Gutierrez, a Lexington police spokeswoman.

Police received calls about gunshots fired in the area of Kemper Court and Whitney Avenue in north Lexington about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday.

They found Tyrell Dumphord, 22, of Lexington, who had been shot in the leg, and he was taken to University of Kentucky Hospital.

"While they were searching the area, trying to secure the area and locate any kind of evidence, they located a second victim," Gutierrez said.

The second victim, who was found at Whitney Avenue and Michigan Street, was stabbed, but he was not taken to the hospital.

No arrests have been made in the cases.
