Lexington police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred Monday night.

Police were called to the Larkin Apartments, 2553 Larkin Road, near Nicholasville Road, about 10:30 p.m. and found a man leaning against a vehicle with a gunshot wound to his upper chest.

He was taken to the University of Kentucky Hospital, where he died. The Fayette County Coroner's Office has not released the man's name.

Two witnesses in apartments overlooking the complex parking lot said they heard a gunshot and saw several people running in different directions. Lt. Edward Hart said police do not know whether the people who were seen running were involved in the shooting or merely frightened.

The apartment complex is near the Nicholasville Road K-Mart.
