Lexington officers said they were sent to the Alexandria Drive and Cambridge Drive area shortly before 9:30 Thursday night after receiving a call about a man being shot.

When police arrived, they said they saw the victim with an apparent gunshot wound in his lower hip walking down the sidewalk.

He told officers that a dark-colored vehicle with a black female driver and two black male passengers pulled up next to him and one of the men tried to rob him at gunpoint.

The victim then said he was forced into the vehicle, and as they started to drive off, he tried to wrestle the gun away from the attempted robber and was shot.

He said that's when the vehicle stopped and he was pushed onto the street.

Afterward, he reported the vehicle took off toward Versailles Road.

The gunshot victim was later taken to UK Medical Center for his injuries.
