Search For Shooting Suspect Continues

The search continues Tuesday for a shooting suspect in Lexington.

The incident happened at Valley Park off Cambridge Drive Monday evening.

The park was crowded with people playing with their children, and trying to enjoy the weather.

The good times were interrupted when two groups of people got into a fight. When the fight escalated, one man was shot, another was attacked by several people, beaten in the head, and chased to a nearby neighborhood where he collapsed in a front yard.

Both the shooting victim and the beating victim were taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Police are still trying to figure out if the shooting itself was gang related.

But they do say some of the people involved in the incident do have gang affiliations.

    People aren't safe anywhere anymore especially when we have no law that is willing to protect you. That's the way it is here in rockcastle county. You can shoot someone here in this county and get away with it easily, especially if you deal with the dirty cops.

    If it was or was not gang related shouldn't matter. Either way, crime is escalating in our neighborhoods. Crime stats reported by the city are false. Citizens see and hear of these types of crimes EVERYDAY and the police aren't keeping appropriate records. We need to demand SAFETY in our community!!!!!! Yes, gangs are here and No it's not just good fun for bored kids!!
