Lexington police were seeking at least two people in the shooting, which occurred just before 1 p.m., at the Man o' War Crossing Apartments on Palumbo Drive.
Police Lt. Mark Brand confirmed that two other people were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds. There was no word on their conditions early Sunday night.
No other names had been released Sunday night.
"We're not clear at this point, but there was some kind of issue inside the residence that led to three people getting shot," Brand said.
Brand said police were looking for two black males. Police said, one is about 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing a gray hoodie and jeans. The second man was wearing shorts and a T-shirt, officers said.
The two men were last seen running toward Man o' War Boulevard, police said.
A few hours after the shootings on Palumbo Drive, police were called to Lexington's Douglass Park after reports of several shots being fired there.
Brand said one person was wounded in that shooting, but his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
The victim went to the hospital on his own to seek treatment, police said.
An investigation was continuing.
"We had a report of shots being fired, but when we got there, we couldn't find anybody," Brand said. "We couldn't find any witnesses that wanted to talk to us, and then we found the victim at the hospital. We're really not sure what happened."
Brand said there was no indication Sunday night that the two shootings were related.
The Palumbo Drive shooting was Lexington's second fatal shooting in little more than a week, and at least the third homicide this year.
James W. Fisher III, 41, died at UK Hospital March 9, shortly after being found shot outside a home on Chestnut Street. That case remains under investigation.
Gambino August, 44, was charged with murder in the death of Natalie K. Liles, 30, who was shot to death at an apartment complex off Eastland Parkway on New Year's Day. That was Lexington's first homicide of 2012.
