Police have arrested a suspect in connection to a shooting in Lexington.

Marcus Chambers, 27, was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged with robbery.

Police said on August 29, Chambers was at a home on 12th Street for an alleged drug deal.

The victim told police that during the transaction, Chambers pulled out a gun and demanded property.

According to court documents, the victim said he refused and ran for the door. Police said that’s when he was shot multiple times in the back.

The victim was taken to UK Hospital but he is OK. Police said he was able positively identify Chambers when he was shown a picture.

Court documents said police found Chambers through the victim’s phone records because they had spoken just before the shooting.

Chambers is scheduled to be arraigned in court Friday.
