Kentucky Gun Control putting steel on target

Man killed in break-in, shooting

One man died and another was injured in a fight at an apartment complex near Shillito Park Wednesday night.

Police received a call at 10:41 about shots fired at Shillito Park Apartments, 3500 Beaver Place Road near Nicholasville Road at Man o' War Boulevard, said Lexington police Lt. Michele Young.

When paramedics arrived, they found a man shot and worked on him, Young said, but he eventually died.

The man who died was one of two men who broke into an apartment at the complex, Young said.

The suspects got into the apartment and shots were exchanged with the resident of the apartment, she said.

The resident was injured and taken to the University of Kentucky Hospital, she said.

The second suspect was last seen running toward Shillito Park, Young said.

Was it a fight or a break in? That first line is a bit misleading. If shots were exchanged sounds like the burglars was armed as well and breaking into an apartment with someone home. Does not sound like they had good intentions.
