Lexington Police reported a shooting that likely occurred at about 4 a.m. June 19 in an apartment complex on Railroad Avenue.

“A resident of the complex was taken into custody who is believed to be involved in the shooting and detectives continue to interview witnesses as well,” the department posted at 9:11 a.m., stating that the active situation was over.

The department said it will release more information at a later time.

Residents of the apartment complex were asked to shelter in place while the police did their work, an order that was lifted a little after 9 a.m.. 

The department posted a little after 6 a.m. that Railroad Avenue was closed from South Lake Drive to Swartz Road. As of 9:11 a.m., the road was set to “reopen shortly.”
