LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Some people in Lexington say they’re thinking about moving after a man was shot during an apparent home invasion on their street.
Latisha Love says Gunn Street is usually quiet, and in the seven months she’s lived there, she hasn’t ever seen a police car drive by.
That’s why, when she heard gunshots Tuesday morning, she thought she was dreaming.
Love, a mother of two, says she moved to Gunn Street from another part of East End, to get away from violence. Now, she’s frustrated to have it happen near her home again, fearing for the safety of her daughters and others on the street.
She says she will stay there for now, but says if things like this keep happening around her home, she’ll move again to protect her kids.
