Police spent time examining bullet holes that riddled an apartment building on Dinsmore Drive, trying to figure out exactly what happened.

Witnesses told police it started with an argument between several men on the corner of Fontaine and Dinsmore Drive.

"At some point one of the individuals produced a weapon and fired in the direction of the other two and they fled. And that's according to the witness statements," said Sgt. Clay Combs with Lexington Police.

That kind of brazen act has folks living near the area worried.

"I don't walk the dog after dark, I don't leave the house after dark. Cause I'm afraid to walk by the corner," said concerned neighbor Jessica Hatfield.

Hatfield believes drugs are behind this incident, and others that have happened in the area.

"They sit on the porch of this building and try to push drugs on kids that come out of the high school like we're in Philly or something. It's kind of unpleasant," Hatfield added.

Police say by the time they arrived on scene, both the shooter and the men he shot at, left.
Witnesses told police the shooter took off toward Richmond Road on Fontaine on foot.

The shooter is described as a black man wearing a black t-shirt and tan cargo shorts.
