A man has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting death of his neighbor at an apartment building on Harrodsburg Road. Lexington Police arrested Terrence Fister, 58, Wednesday evening.
Officers were dispatched to Spanish Trace Apartments in the 2300-block of Harrodsburg Road shortly after 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 27. Upon arrival, officers located a 37-year-old man suffering a gunshot wound. He was transported to the hospital and later died from his injury.
Both Fister and the victim are residents of the same apartment building. The investigation revealed that there was a disorder in the building just prior to the shooting. The victim was coming down the apartment stairwell at the same time Fister opened his door. Fister then fired a single shot at the victim.
Fister remained at the scene and was taken into custody without incident.
The victim’s name will be released by the Fayette County Coroner’s Office pending notification of next of kin.
