A teenager is charged with Murder in the death of a Lexington man. Investigators with the Lexington Police Department today arrested a 17-year-old male following a fatal shooting that occurred Friday evening on Michigan Street. State law prohibits police from releasing the suspect’s name because he is a juvenile.

The victim was transported to the hospital and died from his injury. He has been identified by the Fayette County Coroner’s office as 19-year-old Devon Guest of Lexington.

The investigation revealed that Guest had arranged to meet the suspect and another teenager, and a brief altercation took place just before the shooting.
