An arrest warrant has been issued for a Detroit man following a homicide last week on Jeffrey Court.

Robert McKissic, 30, is wanted for murder in the death of Anthony B. Carter, 51, according to Lexington police.

The shooting occurred outside of an apartment complex on Jeffrey Court, which is off Versailles Road near Alexandria Drive, on Oct. 26 and was the city’s 28th homicide of the year. It was the second murder in a 24-hour span in the city, as Kimberly Dianne Dayton died of asphyxiation the night before Carter’s murder.

McKissic and Carter were acquaintances and an argument between the two resulted in McKissic shooting and killing Carter, according to police.

Carter was found outside of the apartment complex with a gunshot wound and later died at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.
