LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington police are investigating the death of a man who was found shot inside a car.

Police were called to Hedgewood Court for a report of shots fired around 11:35 p.m. Tuesday.

Officers said the victim, 28-year-old Shon D. Davis, Jr., was pronounced deceased at the scene.

A neighbor along Hedgewood Court told us he’s heard plenty of gunshots coming from that area leading up to this.

“I went to the window and saw the caution tape and I immediately knew it was a shooting and that someone probably got killed,” Jordan Graves said. “A couple hours later, I hear about the other shooting on Winchester Road. I don’t know what the hell is going on with Lexington. It’s getting ridiculous.”

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lexington Police by calling (859) 258-3600. Anonymous tips can be submitted to Bluegrass Crime Stoppers by calling (859) 253-2020, online at, or through the P3 tips app available at
