LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington police are investigating after someone fired shots in the parking lot of Fayette Mall.

It happened outside the Dick’s Sporting Goods around 4:24 p.m. Our crew at the scene saw several shell casings on the ground, and one car had bullet holes in the seats and the driver side window was shattered.

Shoppers said they’re just glad nobody was hurt.

“Soon as we walk out, they have the whole thing taped off. At first, I thought my car was inside of the tape. I was scared. I asked the police officer, ‘Yo, am I good to get in my car?’” Michael Nally said.

Leaving Fayette Mall empty handed, Nally and friend Jacob Jackson ended their shopping trip early. The news of the shooting spread quickly.

“This is like a pretty common thing in the city. It’s not really something, like ‘ahh.’ This is just everyday life unfortunately,” Jackson said.

Mall patrons didn’t seem too surprised to walk out to this scene.

“Again? I know there’s been a shooting here previously, so I was like dang. But I was just glad it wasn’t inside,” Nally said.

Police said none of the suspects have been taken into custody.
