2 Sent To Hospital After Overnight Shooting

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) -- Two men have been sent to the hospital after they were shot at a Lexington apartment complex.

Police say that the shooting happened around 11 p.m. Thursday at the Pegasus Place Apartments on Larkin Road. 

The two men who were shot are in their 20s. Both were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses report they heard up to 15 gunshots go off and saw two men fleeing the scene. Police tell LEX 18 that neither of the men are believed to have been the shooter.
 

A neighbor in the complex ran out to offer help to the victims. Charles Millard described the scene to LEX 18.

"I ran over there. He asked me to help him hold his wound, so I held it for about 10 minutes until the police showed up. He was telling me about his sons and stuff and he was hurt pretty bad, but seemed like he was going to be alright," Millard said.

If you have any information on this shooting, you are asked to call police.
