Ohio County Juvenile Charged with Shooting at Another Sunday
A 17 year old is facing charges after a shooting incident with another juvenile in Ohio County Sunday. Kentucky State Police responded to a shooting call in the 12000 block of US 231, north of Hartford. There, they say a group of four juveniles went squirrel hunting earlier in the day. At some point, a fifteen year old decided to leave for home, and, for unknown reasons, was allegedly shot at by the seventeen year old several times. The fifteen year old was struck with the buckshot, and reportedly had whelps and superficial abrasions on his legs. He did not seek medical treatment. The seventeen year old was charged with one count of second degree assault and one count of second degree wanton endangerment. He was released to his legal guardian as the investigation continues.
