Two men arrested for assault after shooting

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Two Corbin men remain jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center after a third man had to be rushed to the hospital with gunshot wounds to his feet.

Mark Allen Paul, 40, and Michael Anthony Skidmore, 39, both face first-degree assault charges related to the shooting.

According to Kentucky State Police Post 11 public information officer Trooper Lloyd Cochran, the shooting occurred early Wednesday morning.

Troopers were called to the Little Spruce Creek Road residence of 58-year-old David C. McNeil at about 1:16 a.m. — there, they found McNeil had been shot in both feet.

Cochran explained troopers learned Skidmore and Paul had allegedly come to McNeil’s residence and began an argument — and Skidmore then reportedly fired several shots from a handgun, striking McNeil two times.

Paul and Skidmore both fled the residence, but were later found, Cochran said.

Crews with Whitley County EMS transported McNeil to Baptist Health Corbin — and then he was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center.

A hospital spokeswoman said late Wednesday McNeil had been treated and released from UK.

Paul remains in the detention center under an unknown bond amount, according to JailTracker records. He faces one count of first-degree assault.

Skidmore remains jailed under a $50,000 cash bond. JailTracker records indicate he faces several charges, including first-degree assault, second-degree fleeing or evading police, carrying a concealed weapon, and other traffic-related charges.

Cochran said that KSP Trooper Les Moses leads the investigation.

Moses was assisted at the scene by troopers Tony Dingess, Brandon Creekmore and Jason McCowan, as well as Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer Landry Collett, officers with the Williamsburg Police Department and deputies with the Whitley County Sheriff’s Office.
