Police Investigate Bizarre Shooting

Lexington Police are investigating a bizarre shooting on the city’s North side of town. It happened just after 10 p.m. Thursday on Maddie Lane in the Masterson Station neighborhood.

Police said two women were inside their home, when they heard a noise downstairs and realized a man was trying to break through their window.

The roommates called 911, keeping dispatchers on the phone while they warned the man to leave, but when he continued to try to pry the window open anyway, that’s when police say one of the women shot him.

The intruder was taken to UK hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police are questioning the man, but so far, no charges have been filed.

Investigators said the woman who shot him acted in self-defense and will not face any charges.
