Shots fired at victim following robbery in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Shots were fired in a Lexington neighborhood on Wednesday morning following a robbery. Lexington Police say they were called to Hacker Court around 8:00 a.m. They say a man with a gun broke into a couple's apartment, demanded money and ran off after they gave him cash. Police tell us one of the victims chased after the robber and that's when the situation turned more dangerous.

"While he was chasing him, the suspect actually turned around and fired a couple of rounds at him," says Lieutenant Chris Van Brackel with Lexington Police.

No one was hurt. After firing the shots, police say the suspect got into a gold car and took off.
