A woman was injured in a shooting Thursday night at Douglas Avenue and Chiles Avenue.

Police were called to the area off Georgetown Street just after 8:30 p.m.

Lexington police Lt. Matt Brotherton said the shooting occurred in the street.

“We believe that the victim and the suspect knew each other, that there was a relationship between them,” Brotherton said.

The woman’s condition was not immediately known.

In scanner traffic, emergency responders indicated that the woman might have been shot in the head but was conscious when they arrived. She was taken to a local hospital.

The suspect was thought to have fled in a vehicle.
