Man shot in abdomen at Red Mile Road apartment

A man was shot in the abdomen at an apartment at 845 Red Mile Road in Lexington on Tuesday afternoon.

The man, who was in his early 20s, told police that two people — one of whom he did not know — came to the apartment and asked to play video games, said police Lt. Andrew Daugherty said.

The victim said that while they were playing, the man he didn’t know “produced a pistol and announced that this was a robbery,” according to Daugherty.

The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was in serious but stable condition Tuesday night, he said. Police were called to the apartment at about 2:30 p.m.
