A man sustained serious injuries in a shooting at an apartment complex on Reynolds Road late Tuesday.

Lexington police Lt. Brian Peterson said officers were called to 249 East Reynolds Road, just off Nicholasville Road, at about 10:45 p.m. When they arrived, they found a man unresponsive inside an apartment with a gunshot wound, Lt. Andrew Daugherty said.

“It is potentially life-threatening,” Peterson said.

Neighbors saw four people flee the area, Daugherty said. Police’s Robbery/Homicide Unit and forensic investigators are working with evidence from the scene, Daugherty added.

Police did not have any suspect information as of 11:15 p.m., Peterson said.
