The man suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to Police Lt. Samantha Moore. She said she wasn’t sure where he was shot. He was taken to UK Chandler Medical Center, she said.

The call was reported 4:25 p.m. in the 900 block of De Porres Avenue, south of New Circle Road not far from Georgetown Road.

The man was found in the area of 944 De Porres and police recovered several shell casings in the area of 928 De Porres, according to witnesses at the scene and Lt. Moore.

Police had several conflicting descriptions of a possible vehicle involved, settling on a gray or silver, four-door passenger car with few other details.

Moore was not sure how many casings were found, but witness Jason Sykes, who lives near the scene, said he heard five shots. Sykes also said he’s tired of the gun violence that continues to disrupt neighborhoods and families.

“I don’t know why, but it just seems like every time you look up, somebody – if it’s not in this neighborhood, it can be any neighborhood anywhere around Lexington,” shared Sykes.
