LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A shooting and homicide investigation is underway after a man was killed and another adult was injured in a shooting at Russell Cave Road late Tuesday night.

Police responded to the scene, just off New Circle Road, around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday. The coroner also responded to the scene.

The Fayette County Coroner's Office says a 40-year-old Armond Lukes died at the scene. Police say a 51-year-old man has injuries that are non-life-threatening.

There is no suspect information at this time but there was a brief chase from the scene. That person got away but it's unclear if the chase and the double shooting were connected.

Officials say there is no word on a potential motive or what led up to the shots being fired. The investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lexington Police at (859) 258-3600. Anonymous tips can be submitted to Bluegrass Crime Stoppers at (859) 253-2020. Submit an anonymous tip here.
