A man and a woman died after a shooting outside an Kentucky apartment complex on Hollow Creek Road in Lexington Saturday afternoon.

The Lexington Police Department responded to 522 Hollow Creek Rd. at 3:58 p.m. and found the two people with gunshot wounds.

“Preliminarily, we believe it was a murder-suicide,” said police Lt. Paul Boyles.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The man was taken to the emergency room at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, said Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn. He said both would be taken to Louisville for an autopsy.

The coroner’s office later identified the woman as 23-year-old Christina Fikes. The man involved in the shooting is Sami Younus, according to LPD crime data.

Ginn said Saturday afternoon that an “altercation” preceded the shooting, and “the police are still trying to get the complete story.”
