GEORGETOWN, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Georgetown Police Department and Lexington Metro Police Department are asking for the public's help in a shooting where a 5-year-old was struck.
On March 27, the Georgetown Police Department investigated a report of shots fired at the Overlook at Elkhorn Creek Apartments. The shots were fired from the apartment located at 206 River Chase Path #10, and rounds went into the apartments next door.
The occupants of the apartment left before officers arrived to the scene. Detectives were called to assist with the investigation, and as a result, a significant amount of marijuana and several weapons were seized.
Detectives continued to work this investigation along with the Lexington Metro Police Department and ATF, and linked a firearm to a shooting in Lexington. During that shooting, five-year-old Malakai Roberts was struck by rounds that were shot into the home where he was sleeping.
If you have information regarding the incidents, both departments ask that you reach out to them at either 502-863-7826 or 859-258-3600.
