Three people were shot and one killed during a shootout at an apartment in Lexington late Monday night.
Police say officers arrived at the Creekside South Apartments on Devonport Drive around 10:45 p.m. and found three people suffering from gunshot wounds. EMS rushed all three to UK Hospital.
Investigators say three intruders kicked down the door of the apartment. There were several people inside and one got a gun. A man inside the apartment along with two of the intruders suffered gunshot wounds during the ensuing shootout.
The Fayette County coroner says the victim from inside the apartment was pronounced dead at the hospital just before 11:30 p.m. The coroner's office identified him as 26-year-old Hispanic male. Officials say they are withholding his name pending notification of family members.
One of the intruders suffered a life-threatening injury, according to police.
Officers took one person into custody for questioning. So far, police have not filed any charges.
