A shootout outside of a Lexington apartment complex near a high school left a bullet hole in a woman's car Tuesday afternoon.
Police say they got several calls about multiple shots fired at the Richmond Commons Apartments on Fontaine Road around 4 p.m. Julie Mount says she was inside when she heard at least six shots outside of her apartment. She says the men involved ran away, and police didn't find any sign of them when they arrived moments later. Officers recovered several bullet casings and checked out a bullet hole near the gas tank of Mount's car.
"We see them shooting, and running back and forth, and they all took off that way," Mount said.
Investigators say nobody offered a good description of the shooters. They were last seen running toward Richmond Road.
"This person had an intended target, and it just so happened to spill into the street, unfortunately," Lexington Police Department Sgt. Joe Anderson said.
The apartment complex is near Henry Clay High School.
