Still No Arrest In Lexington Murder After Man Turns Himself In

Still no arrests made in Lexington murder after police say a man turned himself into them Monday morning.

27 NEWSFIRST has learned a man turned himself in Monday morning claiming to be the gunman who killed 26-year old Quinn Dent Sunday morning outside a bar on 2nd Street.

WKYT's reporter Dave Spencer was inside the Lexington police station when an unexpected visitor paid police a visit, and what he had to say quickly grabbed the attention of investigators.

A man came into the department lobby saying police were looking for him.

He was then asked why police were after him and he said it was because he'd shot someone. Police then asked the man to have a seat and called investigators down to ask him and his friend some questions about a murder they are currently investigating.

After police questioned they decided not to press any charges against him in connection with Dent's murder. They say the man was under the impression he was wanted for the murder, where in fact he was only wanted for questioning to see what he knew about the deadly shooting.

Quinn Dent was found shot three times in the back, according to a police report, outside of the Tee Dee bar on the corner of Second and Spruce Street.

At the time police had little to go on, only that the shooter was wearing a mask and dark clothing.

At this time, police are still looking for the murder suspect.
