A man shot in the leg by his girlfriend has been released from the hospital, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root and a hospital official.

The shooting happened about 9:30 a.m. Saturday along White Oak Road. After Deputy Josh Scott, along with Sgt. Josh Gaylor and Deputy Shane Rice, were dispatched to a reported shooting they found the victim who had reportedly been shot with a 9 mm pistol.

The shooting allegedly occurred while the couple argued. At one point, Root said the man told his girlfriend, Sharon Johnson, to shoot him, which she did.

Johnson, 49, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault, second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and public intoxication (controlled substance).

Root said Johnson appeared to be intoxicated and tried to disrupt the investigation. She also interfered with EMS responders while they were in the home.

Johnson was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

The victim was airlifted by PHI helicopter to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment. A hospital official said he has since been released.
