Lexington police investigating double overnight shooting
Lexington, SC (December 19, 2019) – Lexington Police Chief Terrence Green said early Thursday that there had been a shooting overnight in Lexington. An investigation is ongoing at the Hickory Hill Mobile Home Park at 142 Industrial Drive in Lexington.
At approximately midnight, officers were dispatched to a shooting that had just occurred. When officers arrived, they found a man who had been shot laying on the ground outside of a mobile home. Witnesses said that there were multiple shots fired and that a white sedan left the scene driven by someone who may have been involved in the incident.
While officers were on scene, the Columbia Police Department responded to a call of a man who had been shot and was in need of medical attention. He was found in a white sedan on Beltline Blvd. in Columbia. He is believed to have been involved in the Lexington incident.
Both men involved in this incident appear to have non-life-threatening injuries from the shooting. At this point we are not identifying either man involved in this as the victim or suspect. This is an ongoing investigation and those details are still to be determined.
This active and ongoing investigation includes the Lexington Police Department, Columbia Police Department and the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED). Additional information will be released as it is available.
