An altercation of some sort between drivers and passengers in two cars ended in the fatal shooting of one man on Camelot, between Tates Creek and Nicholasville roads.

Lexington police continue to investigate a shooting in which a man died late Friday night. The shooter has been identified, but no charges had been placed as of Saturday afternoon, police said.

Charon R. Alexander, 21, was pronounced dead outside a home on the 3500 block of Camelot Drive, the Fayette County Coroner’s Office said Saturday in a news release. He died of a gunshot wound.

Police were called to Camelot Drive at 10:17 p.m. Friday.

Detectives determined the shooting stemmed from an altercation between the drivers of two vehicles.

The shooter was alone in his vehicle and remained on the scene, police said. Lexington police Lt. David Biroschik said Friday night that a person in one vehicle lived at the home where the shooting occurred.

Police said Saturday afternoon that Alexander was the driver of one vehicle. Police said the occupants of the SUV Alexander had been driving fled after the shooting but were soon located nearby.

Investigators have identified all the individuals believed to be connected with the shooting and continue to gather details about the course of events.

“They’re still sorting a lot of things out,” Biroschik said Friday night. “It’s a confusing scene.”

Funeral arrangements for Alexander are pending.
