Richmond man followed by car, shot
State police in Richmond are searching for a person who shot a man Monday night after he got out of a car that was being followed on eastbound Ky. 52 in Madison County.
Christopher M. Coleman, 30, was treated and released from University of Kentucky Hospital after the shooting about 10 p.m. Monday on Bybee Loop Road, Kentucky State Police said.
Coleman was a passenger in a car that was being followed. The driver of the vehicle following Coleman flashed the headlights while both cars were on Ky. 52.
The driver of Coleman’s car then turned onto Bybee Loop Road, and the other vehicle continued to follow them.
Both vehicles stopped, Coleman got out of the car to confront the driver, and was shot in the shoulder, Trooper Chris Lanham, a spokesman for the Richmond post, said.
“He started to walk back to confront whoever was in the other vehicle,” Lanham said. “The lights were blinding and glaring.”
Lanham said Coleman might have known the driver, but the headlights were too bright and Coleman couldn’t see the shooter or get a description of the car.
No one has been arrested.
No other information about the case was immediately available.
