Lexington man injured in shooting on Alabama Avenue

A Lexington man was shot in the leg Monday night on Alabama Avenue, police said.

The man had been inside an apartment when another man knocked on the door and asked for him by name, Sgt. Ann Welch said.

When the victim walked to the door, he was immediately shot in the leg, Welch said.

The victim was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening, Welch said.

The victim hasn’t been forthcoming with information about a description of the shooter, Welch said. Police suspect that the victim may have known the shooter, she said.

The shooter was thought to have run from the apartment after the shooting, but there is no information which way he went.
