LEXINGTON, Ky. — Police are investigating a shooting in the parking lot of a Kentucky middle school during a football game.
Lexington police told news outlets a 20-year-old man sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg Thursday night. Lt. Jackie Newman says he and two other people that police have yet to identify got into a dispute in the parking lot of Southern Middle School.
