Police say a 35-year-old Lexington man was shot and killed in the driveway of a home on Lindy Lane that he shares with his mother.
Fayette County coroner Gary Ginn says it appears 35-year-old Derrick Stewart was shot at least one time sometime early Friday morning. A neighbor found Stewart's body just before 7:00 a.m.
Police had responded to the neighborhood in the middle of the night after someone reported hearing gunshots. They didn't find anything suspicious.
Greg Fath lives nearby. He told 27 NEWSFIRST that he heard something that sounded like fireworks overnight and didn't think to call police.
Authorities are now trying to track down who Stewart might have had contact with prior to his death and where he was.
If you have any information on the case, you're asked to contact the Lexington Police Department at (859) 258-3600.
Stewart's body is undergoing an autopsy at the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.
