Update: Lexington Police Searching For Answers After Shooting

Lexington Police said they are still questioning witnesses after a shooting Friday night on West 5th Avenue.

Lexington Police are investigating a shooting that happened on West 5th Street around 5:45 p.m.

Officers said right now they still have more questions than answers.

According to police, two people were shot and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers said the shooting ended across the street from the Catholic Action Center.

They said they are still questioning witnesses and trying to figure out what exactly happened.

Ginny Ramsey, Catholic Action Center Co-Director, said one of the people shot was volunteering with them tonight.

“Our folks who are homeless and our people at the center were having dinner,” Ramsey said, “Of course it scared them.”

Ramsey said the neighborhood has been a rough area since they opened the center nearly 14 years ago.

“Is it scary? Absolutely not. You know in some ways I feel like we're protected there. But the fact of the matter is we're where the people need us to be,” Ramsey said.

Police haven’t made any arrests. They said they did have helicopters up to seach for the suspect.
