A man was found shot in a car at the McDonald’s at Russell Cave and New Circle roads Tuesday night.
Lexington police Lt. Andrew Daugherty said police were called to the restaurant at about 9:40 p.m. because of a report about a disorder.
When they arrived, they found the injured man in a passenger car that had hit a tree while traveling at what Daugherty said was a fairly high rate of speed for a parking lot.
The man was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, but the extent of his injuries was not immediately known.
