A man was shot in the shoulder Monday morning in what apparently was a drive-by shooting.
Lexington Police were called to the Microtel Inn and Suites on Buena Vista Road off of Winchester Road about 9:30 a.m. Monday. Police said a 24-year-old man was shot while sitting in a vehicle in the hotel parking lot. The shots came from another vehicle, Lt. Jackie Newman said.
The man was taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital for surgery. His injuries were serious and were thought to be life-threatening.
Police interviewed two witnesses later Monday. Police are looking for a dark vehicle, possibly a Toyota Camry, that was thought to be involved in the incident.
