Pair who were shot at arrested for robbery

Lexington police have charged a Nicholasville woman and Lexington man with first-degree robbery Saturday afternoon after officers were called to investigate shots that were fired at the car the pair were driving.

Officers caught up with Dora McElroy, 43 of Nicholasville, at 2:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Goodwill Industries store on New Circle Road where they found a bullet hole in the green Buick LeSabre she had been in.

After interviewing McElroy and Donald R. Adams, 34 of Lexington, police say the two stole money from someone on Suncrest Avenue near North Broadway, said Lt. Chris Van Brackel.

As of late Saturday afternoon, police still were trying to identify the person who fired at least one shot at McElroy and Adams' car as they were backing out of the driveway of the Suncrest Avenue house.

The incident is under investigation.
