A neighbor found a man beaten and shot at a Lexington apartment complex early Monday morning.
Police say the neighbor heard a gunshot around 1:15 a.m. outside the apartment building on Cummins Court, just off Village Drive. When she walked outside, she found a man with a wound to his arm and a cut on the back of his head. Police say the victim told them five armed men approached him outside of a nearby apartment. One of the suspects hit him in the head and demanded cash. The victim ran and one of the robbers fired a shot, hitting him in the arm.
A witness says she saw three men running through a parking lot to Daniel Court, and neighbors say they spotted a strange car in the area moments before. They described the vehicle as a white, early 90s Cadillac Coup Deville. Police say they don't know if that car has a connection to the robbery attempt or not.
EMS took the victim to UK Hospital. Officials describe his injuries as non-life threatening.
