Shooting Victim Critical

Lexington Police are searching for answers after a man was gunned down in a parking lot early Thursday morning.

The victim was found shot in the chest at Diva's Gentlemen's Club on Russell Cave Road, just inside New Circle.

Police say 29-year-old Ludger Janvier had been at the club since the early evening. Investigators believe there was a fight in the parking lot that ended with Janvier getting shot at least once in the chest.

After having been shot, police say Janvier stumbled into the nearby Taco Bell parking lot where a Chevron Employee called for help.

Janvier was rushed to the hospital and is now listed in critical condition.

Police combed the large area for evidence and also spoke with a small crowd of patrons and employees who gathered to watch as police worked.

So far, police say they have more questions than answers. They are looking for witnesses or anyone living or working in the area who may have seen something.
