LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Police in Lexington arrested one man and are looking for two others after a shooting that injured one person Wednesday night on the city's south side.

Authorities said 18-year-old Richard Brown was captured after a short foot chase.

Police said Brown and two other men forced their way into an apartment on Hacker Court, just of Wilson Downing Road. An argument ensued and someone fired a gun.

One person was struck by the gunfire but the injury was not considered life-threatening, police said.

Brown was expected to be in court Thursday. Police were continuing to look for the other two suspects.
