Man shot in parking lot of Dairy Queen in Lexington

A man was shot in the leg Monday night in the parking lot of a Dairy Queen on Virginia Avenue.

The man told police that he was walking down the street just after 9 p.m. when someone fired at him from inside a car, Lt. Ann Welch said.

Police findings and conflicting stories from witnesses showed that might not have been what happened, Welch said.

The victim would not give police any information on the shooter, Welch said. He was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening, Welch said.
