Officers were sent at 7:21 a.m. Friday to the 100 block of Meadowlark Drive after receiving a report of a shooting, according to an RPD news release.
The officers found a woman at the home who had a gunshot wound to her lower leg that possibly was caused by a shotgun. She was transported to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment, according to the release.

The RPD is investigating the incident and no additional details were available, the release stated.
