LEXINGTON, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Kentucky marine is dead and his wife is recovering after a shooting in Lexington Friday night.

Twenty-six-year-old Jonathan Price, from Versailles, was shot and killed in a parking lot outside Austin City Saloon. Price's wife was with him at the bar and was also shot but is expected to survive.

Police said the shooting could be connected to another murder in Downtown Lexington late Saturday night as witnesses described a similar suspect - a black man with shoulder-length dreadlocks, wearing a white T-shirt.

Police said witnesses in both cases also mentioned a silver car.
