NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Nicholasville Police are still searching for a man considered to be armed and dangerous at a Nicholasville hotel after a shooting Wednesday night.
People staying at Home Place Inn in Nicholasville are understandably shaken up after police say 29-year-old Alfredo Delgado of Frankfort reportedly shot a hotel clerk last night.
Police say it happened just after 9 PM last night. The victim, a woman, was taken to UK Hospital.
Police say she was conscious enough to describe Delgado and help officers identify him.
We spoke with a woman who says she saw what happened Wednesday night, though she didn’t want to be identified since police are still looking for the man. She says she’s lived at Home Place for nearly 4 weeks with her eight-year-old grandson.
She says last night her grandson went to get candy from the vending machine when he heard a lady screaming and yelling for help. She says when she ran out to the lobby, she found the hotel clerk shot in the neck and jaw laying in a pool of blood.
She says she screamed for her grandson to call 911 and got towels to help stop the bleeding as they waited.
“Anywhere we go now, we got to worry about somebody getting shot. And the shooting’s got to stop. And there’s children here. And could it happen again? I don’t know. I’ll be glad, at ease when they put him where he belongs,” said the woman.
She says the whole ordeal lasted hours. Everyone in the hotel was evacuated across the street.
Police are still searching for Delgado, warning that he is considered armed and dangerous, and to not approach him.
