A man suffered a gunshot wound as he walked in his own Lexington neighborhood Sunday night.
Police say the victim told them he was walking through the shopping center at Anniston Drive and Augusta Drive around 11:30 p.m. when he heard someone yelling. The victim said he recognized a man from the neighborhood, and the suspect pulled a gun and shot him in the shoulder. The victim made it to his apartment and had somebody drive him to the hospital. He was treated and released.
Police say the victim told them he got into a fight with the man about a year ago, but didn't offer any more of a possible motive than that.
Investigators say the shooter was a white man in his late 20s, standing about 6-feet tall and weighing 160 pounds.
