According to WKYT, Former Kentucky cornerback Shomari Moore was shot in the chest last night just before 10 p.m. on Winchester and Elkhorn Road. Moore was able to drive himself to Winchester and Owens Road after being shot and flag down a police officer. Moore was then escorted to UK Hospital, where he is being treated for his injuries, the severity of which are unknown.
Lexington Police are currently still searching for the two gunmen, whom Moore said approached him in his car and shot him in the chest: “He said they flagged him down, and as soon as he rolled his window down, one of them shot him in the chest. He sped in his vehicle and when he encountered our officer, he flagged him down,” said Lexington Police Lt. Eric Lowe.
Moore played for UK from 2005-2007, and was named to the Freshman All-SEC Team, as well as the SEC Academic Honor Roll in 2007. He worked as a grad assistant for the men’s basketball team last season.
