Man killed in rush-hour shooting on busy Lexington road identified
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Fayette County Coroner has released the name of a man killed in a rush-hour shooting on a busy Lexington road.
Police said just before 6 p.m. Tuesday they responded to a call for shots fired with a victim in the 400 block of East New Circle Road, near the intersection of Meadow Lane.
The coroner says 42-year-old Eric Boone was taken to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Our crew at the scene saw bullet holes on a white Dodge Charger, and people in the area said they heard several shots.
Boone’s death pushes the city’s homicide rate to outpace where we were at this time last year.
No arrests have been made in the case.
