Times-Tribune Staff Report

Accidental shooting under investigation

An investigation continues into an accidental shooting which sent a 14-year-old juvenile to the hospital Saturday.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter, Sgt. Josh Gaylor and Deputy John Inman were dispatched to West Pine Hill Road west of London just before noon and found two juveniles in the road.

One of the juveniles had a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Root said deputies learned three male juveniles were inside a residence, and one, a 15-year-old, was handling his grandfather’s .38 caliber revolver in the kitchen.

He reportedly tripped, and the weapon discharged, hitting the 14-year-old juvenile.

The 15-year-old called 911 dispatchers and then helped the injured teen outside.

A 16-year-old juvenile, the victim’s cousin, had left the scene prior to the sheriff’s department’s arrival.

The victim was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington. His condition is unknown.

The gun owner was out of town when the shooting occurred.

Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County and the Keavy Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department assisted at the scene.

Investigation continues after man shoots brother

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said a Pittsburg man was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington after being shot in the leg.

Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and deputies Robbie Grimes and Josh Scott responded to the Kentucky Hollow Road residence Saturday to investigate a disturbance complaint.

Troy D. Miller, 45, was reportedly shot in the leg by his brother, Linville Miller, with a .22 caliber pistol.

Their investigation into the shooting continues.

Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County and the East Bernstadt Volunteer Fire Department assisted at the scene.

A third person at the residence was arrested by Scott. Root said that during the deputies’ investigation, Freda M. Tincher, 53, of Pittsburg, was performing actions which impeded their work. She now faces charges of second-degree disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Tincher was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Man arrested on bench warrant

A man arrested on a Laurel County bench warrant remains jailed at the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Sheriff John Root said Detective Jason Back arrested Jordan Glancy, 22, of London, on Meyers Baker Road Friday.

He faces second-degree possession of a controlled substance and several other violations.

Bailiff arrests man at judicial center

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Sheriff’s Bailiff Brandon Broughton arrested Eric Sizemore, 36, of East Bernstadt Friday.

Sizemore had an indictment arrest warrant for him. He faces charges of receiving stolen property, obscuring the identity of a machine and second-degree persistent felony offender.

He was jailed at the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Two arrested now face DUI charges

Laurel County Sheriff Deputy Kirk Mays made two unrelated DUI arrests this weekend, according to Sheriff John Root.

The first arrest occurred Friday on I-75 near London. Kenneth Thompson, 26, of London, now faces charges of reckless driving, operating on a suspended license, disregarding a stop sign and operating a motor vehicle under the influence.

He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

The second arrest came early Saturday. Mays arrested Jessica Nicole Ginn, 32, of London, on South U.S. 25 near Corbin. She now faces charges of operating a motor vehicle under the influence and operating on a DUI-suspended license.

She remains jailed under a $5,000 cash bond at the Laurel County Correctional Center.
