Man, woman injured in Lexington shooting on Osage Court

Lexington police are investigating a shooting Tuesday at an apartment complex on Osage Court that left two people injured.

Police have not released the identities of the victims, a man and a woman. Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said the woman lived in the apartment where the shooting occurred.

One victim was shot in the leg. Roberts said she didn't know what the other person's injuries were. Both were taken to University of Kentucky Hospital, and both had been discharged by Tuesday evening.

Roberts said police have taken a "person of interest" into custody after a foot pursuit that ended on Mulberry Drive. She said the victims knew the alleged shooter, but Roberts did not discuss a possible motive.

Roberts said the shooting occurred about an hour before kids began arriving home from school Tuesday afternoon. The man and woman were inside the home with two children at the time of the shooting. Neither of the kids were hurt, Roberts said.
