Lexington police have charged a man in connection with a deadly shooting at the Day’s Motel on Sunday.

Durease Richards, 23, was charged Tuesday with facilitation to commit murder, Lexington police said. He was being held at the Fayette County Detention Center.

Police said they found Tyreece Lionel Clark, 40, shot multiple times at the motel annex on Versailles Road near Delmont Drive about 9:18 p.m. Sunday.

He died later that night at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

Police have said witnesses reported seeing three males leave the motel in a black pickup truck after the shooting. They think Clark and the suspects knew each other.

The investigation is ongoing, and police asked that anyone with information contact them.
