LEXINGTON, Ky. - Lexington police say they haven't made any arrest in a shooting that wounded a man as thousands of people were celebrating Kentucky's win over Kansas for another NCAA title.

Lt. Clayton Roberts says the shooting happened shortly after 2 a.m. today after some people inside a vehicle had words with some people standing on the sidewalk. He says the people in the car got out, and a person on the sidewalk opened fire with a handgun, hitting a man from the vehicle.

Roberts says the man, who is in his 30s, was taken to University of Kentucky Medical Center with serious injuries that weren't believed to be life-threatening.

He says the gunman disappeared into the crowd and behind some buildings and police could not locate him.
