Two men face charges after a shoot-out in a Richmond neighborhood.

Shots were fired Thursday afternoon near the corner of Linden Street and Maple Street, not far from the YMCA.

Neighbors say it all started because of a speeding car.

Neighbors say Mark Goggins, who lives in the neighborhood was driving too fast. Another man who lives on the street stopped him and told him to slow down because children often play in the area.

Neighbors say the two men exchanged words and the situation escalated. Police say in the course of the argument, both men pulled out guns and started shooting.

No one was hurt, but a storm door on a house was shot out.

Police say they don't know how many shots were fired but say both men fired shots. Both guns have been recovered.

Both Hopkins and Goggins are charged with wanton endangerment and possession of a hand gun by a convicted felon.

    i don't live near Richmond but i have friends that do. if people are so gun firing happy then maybe they should join our military. i have a son who is on his 2nd tour in Iraq and believe me they are inocent lives lost even in the war so trigger happy red necks shouldn't be out shooting every where.

    HENNY...no that's NOT all that's in Madison County. There are MUCH more shootings in Lexington than Madison County. Not to mention all of the other murders and crimes being commited in your town. Think twice before speaking. ;)

    Neighbor, which facts? The fact that they were both felons with firearms? The fact that they were rednecks shooting at each other? The fact that they are just stupid in general? Help clarify which "educational knowledge" we need.

    check out all the facts before you post your educational knowledge. sometimes the media reacts in a judgemental fashion that totaly does not reflect the facts of the matter of the law.

    "Both Hopkins and Goggins are charged with wanton endangerment and possession of a hand gun by a convicted felon" That right there says it all. Gun control is for idiots that can hire armed guards. It doesnt keep anyone else safe.
