LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A man who was shot and killed in July was killed in self-defense, according to Lexington police.

On July 10, Lexington police found 19-year-old Darrius Twyman in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Danielle Lane. Lexington police said they found several shell casings and also said a few parked cars were hit as well.

Twyman died at University of Kentucky Medical Center two days later.

In a statement released Thursday, police say the case was ruled a justifiable homicide after forensic evidence and witness statements showed that the shooter acted in self-defense.
