By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A man is recovering in the hospital after being shot in a Lexington neighborhood, and police are continuing to look for suspects in the case.

The shooting happened around 4:45 Monday afternoon on East Loudon Avenue.

As of 10:30 p.m. Thursday night, police were still canvassing the area, interviewing witnesses and neighbors, where they say a shooting has put one man in UK Hospital. He is in surgery and listed in serious condition with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Police tell us the shooting happened in the driveway between two homes on East Loudon Avenue where orange cones are still set up. But a motive is not being released right now since it's an ongoing investigation.

It's not known how many shots were fired, but police did find shell casings on scene as well as bullet holes in a blue truck parked out front. Police have confirmed multiple shots were fired, and they also say it's a possibility that there was an exchange of fire between the two parties.

We have been told Lexington police are looking for two men who were last seen in a gold passenger car heading east on East Loudon Avenue towards Winchester Road. These suspects are being described as black males with one wearing a green shirt and light colored pants with dreadlocks and the other also having dreadlocks but wearing a tan shirt and light colored pants.

"At this point our officers are on scene. We have officers on the ground, we set up a perimeter, and we have a helicopter in the air," said Sherelle Roberts, with Lexington police. "We are trying to find the suspect or suspects responsible for this shooting."

Police say they expect the 200 block of East Loudon Avenue to be shutdown for quite a while.

The victim's name is not being released at this time. And police say they are still searching for the suspects in this case.
