It was a scary situation for people at a Lexington movie theater when they got caught in gunfire.

Shots were fired in the parking lot of the Fayette Mall Cinemark Theaters early Tuesday morning.

Police say at around 12:20 a.m. two groups of men got into a fight and one person pulled gun. One shot was fired into the air and another three were fired at a white Chevy Cavalier.

Police say two white Cavaliers fled the scene, one old and one new.

No one was hurt in the fight and police are still searching for the group of white men and the group of Hispanic men.

Business owners in the area are shocked, but they have full confidence that the police will find those responsible.

"We often get a lot of younger kids here. But as far as any nefarious element, I don't think there's anything to that. I'm just as shocked as anyone would be," Jon Askelton, the manager of Moe's Southwest Grill said.

Police say they have filed a wanton endangerment report because there were other people in the area.

Again, no one was hurt and no arrests have been made.

    If I were a betting type of person, which I am not being a devout church going God fearing person, I would say that this is gang related. Latin Kings, MS-13, and Aryian Brotherhood are going to take over the Lexington area. Watch a documentary on them. Its not a pretty sight. I hope someone steps in before its too late for everyone.

    I don't see anywhere in the story that states the Hispanics were "illegal" so get off your soapbox and quit stereotyping. And thank you WKYT for removing the post that I alerted you about. Disagreeing is one thing, name calling in the fashion that commenter used was uncalled for. Much appreciated.

    How about all European-Americans (which means all of us who are "legal", naturalized citizens) learn how to speak Iroquoian, Muskogean, Siouan, etc.? If we're gonna make all illegal immigrants speak one language, they may as well speak the true Native tongue of America (which came from the Native Peoples--aka the Native Americans). Furthermore, "our language" is comprised of many different dialects. Which one should we choose? I don't really want to learn Bostonian, do you? Having one state language, or one state religion, etc. are results of a totalitarian government (ex. Nazi Germany or Fascist Italy.) All I'm saying is think about what you're saying, and try to be more respectful of other cultures. There are just as many Caucasian people (acutally more) breaking the law as there are (insert ethnicity/race) people doing the same; minorities are just overrepresented in the criminal justice system. *Climbs off soapbox

    Illegal immigrants are taking over this country. But hey they work cheap don't they? They do the jobs others won't do don't they? Well I'm sure once they find out they can get handouts from the government they won't be working hard anymore. Any argument for illegal immigrants is absolutely outrageous. WE let this get out of control. WE need to something to stop it now, before things escalate even worse.

    this is what happens when your town becomes inundated with illegal immigrants. But it's all good, just forget about it, this illegal problem will solve itself.
