Shots Fired In Neighborhood, Stray Bullet Hits SUV

A Lexington family's truck was hit by a stray bullet Saturday afternoon. Now, police are looking for the shooter.

"It's crazy I've been living out here for a year and a half and I've never experienced nothing like this," says Tacarra Powell, who owns the SUV. "I'm sitting here thinking I'm lucky my car was here because the angle of the bullet was in my car it would have went in my window. And we were sitting right here in front of the window," she says.

Powell didn't hear any gunshots Saturday afternoon at her home on Roosevelt Boulevard off of Georgetown Street, but her neighbors did. "So I was sitting on the couch with my two little girls and he came and knocked on my door and said, 'Did you hear the gun shots?' And I said, 'No.' And he was like, 'Well your car got shot up.' And at first I was thinking here, 'What are you talking about?" says Powell.

Soon Lexington Police were called out to investigate. Witnesses tell police they heard as many as two to three gunshots ring out and another neighbor tells police they saw two vehicles, one appeared to be chasing the other. "She says she saw a white Lincoln town car and a black Corvette driving around the circle," remembers Powell.

Police found bullet shells and say they will continue to investigate.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact police.
