One man is dead and another man is wanted for questioning after a shooting at a Lexington gas station.

"He never met a stranger, he would give you the shirt off his back," said Michael's mother, Tammy Hanley.
When Tammy Hanley realized her son wasn't home around 3:30 Sunday morning, she made a phone call - one she'll never forget.
"We called Michael's phone and no one answered and someone finally answered and said 'oh my god, Michael's been shot.,'" Tammy said.
Tammy says she arrived to find her son on the floor inside the station's store. She says she performed CPR before help arrived.
Lexington police say Hanley was shot near one of the gas pumps, then came back inside the store for help, where gas station employees say he collapsed.
He was later pronounced dead at UK Hospital..
