FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) -Someone shot a 17-year-old at Tierra Linda Apartments, on Hanly Road in Frankfort around 1 o’clock Friday.
Police say the 17-year-old was shot in the leg and was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Speaking with several neighbors about what happened, no one seemed to hear the gunshot. One neighbor said she heard several shots two weeks ago around the same apartment building.
“I mean you see everybody out and about, playing, the kids, all that. that’s why I moved over here because it was quiet, you know. I keep to myself but I also stay right on my balcony so yeah this is not normal for around here and Frankfort is getting worse. I mean there are shootings everywhere in Frankfort now.”
Police say the two shootings are unrelated, but the incident remains under investigation. Shots were also fired nearby on Holmes Street not long after the Hanly Road shooting, but no one was hit. Police say none of incidents are related.
