Laurel County, KY - Sheriff John Root is reporting that: Detective Kyle Gray along with Detective Sgt.

Initially, deputies were dispatched to a B & E in progress with shots fired. When deputies arrived at the scene, they found a male subject with gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to Baptist Healthcare Corbin and then later transferred by ground to UK Hospital Lexington for treatment.
