LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)- A man is in serious condition in the hospital this morning after police say he was shot on the north side of Lexington late last night.

The shooting happened on Alice Drive off Georgetown Road. Police are looking for multiple people in connection with this. When police arrived at the scene around 9:30 p.m. they found a 40-year-old man with a gunshot wound.

Officers are still following up on some leads, but witnesses apparently saw three men in dark clothes run from the home. The circumstances surrounding the incident are still hazy, but police suggest this doesn’t appear to be a random act of violence.

Police say people in the area should not be concerned for their safety, but they encourage them to report any unusual activity they may have seen in the past few days.
