LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington Police are looking for the gunman after a shooting Monday night.

Lexington Police say it happened just after 9pm on Carneal Road near Castlewood Park.

They say a number of shots were fired into a home and added that it appears another home, that was not the target of the attack was also pulled into the violence.

Lexington Police said overnight that two people were in the home that received the brunt of the gunfire and that they were not harmed during the shooting.

But they say a stray bullet did hit a neighboring home.

Police couldn’t say how many shots were fired or how many shell casings were recovered.

Witnesses told investigators that a light blue P.T. Cruiser Convertible pulled up to the house and fired several shots inside. The driver was a male black, 5’11”, 140lbs wearing dark jeans and a long white t-shirt.

Police have a person of interest but so far no arrests have been made.
