LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A 14-year-old has been arrested and charged in connection with the shooting death on Alumni Drive on Sunday, police said.

The suspect is charged with manslaughter, tampering with physical evidence and minor in possession of a handgun. His name is not being released because he is a juvenile.

Lexington Police responded to the shooting at Eastridge Apartment complex around 3:45 p.m. Sunday. The coroner confirmed Sunday evening that 17-year-old Hayden Nash was killed inside an apartment and died at the scene.

This is at least the second shooting death at the property this year. In January 2021, 26-year-old Bryan D. Greene was found dead inside his apartment. A suspect was later arrested.
