Lexington Police say they're looking for at least two suspects in a drive-by shooting Friday off of Fifth Street.

Investigators say an innocent bystander was shot in the hand during the incident. They say he walked a block down the road to the Catholic Action Center where someone called 911.

Police say the victim was taken to UK hospital and is expected to be OK.

Witnesses say two cars pulled up near the intersection of Pemberton and 5th and began shooting at each other.

Police received word that one of the vehicles involved in the shooting was a black Jeep. They say they're still looking for those vehicles and suspects.

If you have any information on the case call Lexington Police.
