The victim has been identified as 24-year-old Chelton Lindsey. Police say he has been taken to the hospital for a single gunshot wound to his leg.

Officer Ronnie Ward spoke with 13 News on the incident.

"At this point in time we do not believe there is a danger to the public, we believe this is a contained incident we had previous reports that a person in a vehicle had fired a weapon at the victim but we now know that, that is not factual. So we're determining right now who it was that pulled the trigger, detectives and officers are working on that as we speak." -- Ofc. Ronnie Ward, BGPD PIO

Police say there is no definite description of a possible suspect. Anyone with information is encouraged to call BGPD at 270-393-4000.
