Man in Tatesbrook Drive shooting dies from injuries

A man found with multiple gunshot wounds on Tatesbrook Drive late Tuesday night has died.

Taiwan Hart, 34, of Lexington was pronounced dead about 10:30 p.m. at the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

Lt. Rodney Sherrod of the Lexington police said officers were called to 1124 Tatesbrook Drive, off Appian Way near Tates Creek Road, at about 10 p.m. when the man's girlfriend called to report that he had been shot.

When officers arrived, several people directed them to the man, who was lying in the driveway.

Sherrod said the victim did not live at the home where he was found.

Sherrod said those at the scene said only that the man had been shot by a black man in dark clothing.

"Right now, we don't have any motive," Sherrod said.

Officers had been posted throughout the neighborhood to look for the shooter.
