Surveillance camera captures shooting at Lexington home
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington police are investigating two separate shooting incidents that happened overnight Wednesday.
The first happened just before midnight. According to police someone shot into a home on Wickland Drive, near Bryan Station Middle School. Police say five people were inside the home at the time. No one was injured.
A surveillance camera across the street captured the shooting:
The homeowner who shared the video did not want to show his face. He told us he heard the gunshots Tuesday night, just before midnight.
“My son woke me up. I wasn’t completely asleep, but he told me that he thought there was a shooting, and I said, ‘don’t worry about it. It might have just been fireworks,’ but we did come out. He looked at the footage, and the police showed up,” the homeowner said.
They told us they were not sure why shots were fired into their home. You hear a series of gunshots on the surveillance video, then see two individuals run away.
The man we spoke to says this is not the first shooting. His surveillance camera caught another shooting at the same home last year around the Fourth of July:
The man told us this is typically a quiet neighborhood.
“It’s strange because I don’t know who would want to be bothering these people,” he said. “They seem nice and quiet. I don’t know what’s going on.”
The second incident in Lexington overnight occurred around 1:30 a.m. Police say a man was found shot on North Martin Luther King Boulevard. The victim was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.
Police have not released any information on possible suspects for either case.
