LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - One person is dead after an overnight shooting in Lexington.

The Fayette County Coroner’s office identified 20-year-old Herbie Booker as one of the victims of the shooting.

Officers were called to Colchester Drive around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday for a report of shots being fired.

Before police arrived, they learned the injured subjects left the scene.

While on Colchester Drive, off Winburn Drive, police received another call about a crash involving two cars at South Limestone and Virginia Avenue.

Officers found two men suffering from gunshot wounds in one of the cars.

Both victims were transported to the hospital. Booker died at the hospital. The extent of the other victim’s injuries wasn’t clear, according to police.

Investigators said early indications suggest the two men were shot on Colchester Drive.

The shooting happened the same day a man was killed in Lexington.

Lowell Washington, 35, was shot multiple times inside an apartment on Dalton Court early Wednesday morning.

No arrests have been made in either case.
