LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– Police are investigating after an apparent domestic situation turned into a shots fired incident.

It happened around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday on Chelsea Woods Court.

Officials say they believe there was a disorder between a woman and her ex-boyfriend after he approached her home and began banging on the door.

“At some point during the altercation, the homeowner grabbed a handgun and fired several rounds possibly in self-defense,” said Lieutenant Brian Peterson.

The man reportedly fled the scene in a vehicle. Police have not been able to locate him.

“Although it is possible that he has been struck, we’re waiting to hear from any local hospitals or if anybody has any information on that, we appreciate them getting in contact with us,” Peterson said.

No one inside the home was injured, but a vehicle outside the home was damaged by gunfire.
