A man accused of shooting another man Wednesday in Nicholasville has been charged with attempted murder and possession of a handgun by a felon.
Nicholasville police Officer Kevin Grimes said Carlos Taylor, 23, and the victim were "having a disagreement, and one (Taylor) pulled out a gun and shot the other."
The shooting occurred about 4:45 p.m. Wednesday on Chestnut Street, and Taylor was arrested about 9 p.m.
Grimes said the relationship between the shooter and victim is unclear, but the two knew each other.
The shooting was near a children's park close to Main Street. Grimes said no children were in danger, and it "seemed to be pretty isolated when this took place."
The victim was later identified as Calvin Lyvers, 29, who was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with three gunshot wounds.
Lyvers remains in the hospital in stable condition.
Taylor was charged in 2010 with murder in relation to a Lexington shooting, and admitted to police that he shot the man, according to court documents.
A jury found Taylor guilty of reckless homicide, but not murder, in the 2010 shooting. He was sentenced to five years in prison, but did not serve the full sentence.
