Man is shot in the abdomen on Ward Drive in Lexington

A man was shot in northwest Lexington Saturday night, and police had taken the suspected shooter into custody.

Police were called to 874 Ward Drive at 8:45 p.m. on a complaint of a "disorder with a weapon," said Lexington police Lt. Jesse Harris.

When they arrived, officers found a man with a single gunshot wound to the abdomen, and a man believed to be the shooter was still at the scene.

Neither man was identified by police, who said they did not yet know the relationship between the suspect and victim or what sparked the shooting.

The victim was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.
