The fourth annual Bluegrass Crime Stoppers shootout was held on Saturday at the police firing range in Lexington off of Parkers Mill Road.

Proceeds from the event go to the Bluegrass Crime Stoppers and CSIS program. The money is used for rewards when people contact Crime Stoppers to give information that leads to arrests in the community.

Officials say events like this are important for the Crime Stoppers program.

"It's huge. Without the support of the police and the participants here today, we couldn't function, so it's one of our main fundraisers", says Edward Fuller, the current chairman of the Bluegrass Crime Stoppers.

Nearly one-hundred participants were expected at the Bluegrass Crime Stoppers shootout.
