The list of recent shootings in Lexington grew to 10 in the last week after another shooting incident early Wednesday morning.

And here's the scene I was greeted with yesterday evening as I returned from class. Happened around 6pm, right as I was leaving campus.

Hours after police announced a task force intended to crack down on the number of shootings in Lexington, the city saw its 14th shooting incident in nine days.

I thought Lexington was supposed to be a fairly safe city? This is crazy.
