Lexington Police respond to three shootings within one hour

Lexington Police are investigating what led up to three separate shootings early Tuesday morning and whether any of them could be connected.

A victim from one of the shootings was listed in critical condition as of 6 a.m., according to investigators.

That victim, a man, was found shot in the chest inside a car at Engman Avenue and North Martin Luther King Boulevard.

Investigators said he wasn't being cooperative with investigators at the hospital.

At least one person faces charges for another shooting that happened around 3:15 a.m. outside Diva's Gentleman's Club on Russell Cave Road.

Police say Jafari Moore, 31, got into an argument with the victim, stole the victim's gun then shot the victim.

Moore was arrested during a traffic stop on Third Street, near North Broadway. Others were taken in for questioning. WKYT cameras captured video of a gun inside a car during that traffic stop.

Around 4 a.m., police responded to Costigan Drive in Winburn for a reported shooting. A man went to U.K. Hospital after being shot in the wrist. It's unclear whether police are searching for a suspect in connection to that shooting.
