A Richmond man is charged with attempted murder and other felonies stemming from a shooting Saturday, police said Wednesday.
In addition to attempted murder, Clifford L. Gulley, 53, is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, fleeing and evading police, first-degree stalking, first-degree burglary, three counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, tampering with physical evidence and first-degree criminal mischief.
Police responded to a report at 2:20 p.m. Saturday of shots fired at an apartment building in the 100 block of Maple Hill Drive. Officers found a man with a gunshot wound to the left shoulder sitting in a vehicle. Witnesses identified Gulley as the shooter and said he had fled on foot.
Police later determined Gulley's ex-girlfriend had visited the victim's residence, and then she and another woman went to the store and left the front door unlocked. Shortly after their departure, Gulley allegedly burst into the apartment and pointed a handgun at the victim.
Never miss a local story.
Gulley fired one shot from a .38-caliber revolver and struck the victim, whom police did not identify, in the left shoulder, authorities said. The victim and Gulley struggled for the gun, and the victim was able to knock the gun to the floor, police said.
The struggle continued outside the apartment, where Gulley allegedly pulled a 9mm pistol and attempted to shoot it; it apparently misfired. Gulley then struck the victim in the head with the gun and fled on foot, police said.
A short time later, Gulley was found and detained on nearby Golfview Drive. He was not armed, but a search of the area produced a second handgun, police said.
The victim was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital for treatment of a wound that police said was not life-threatening.
Police later learned the two handguns had been stolen from a residence on Westover Avenue during a burglary earlier in the day. A third handgun stolen in the burglary and a bottle of prescription medicine were recovered from Gulley's residence after the shooting, police said.
Gulley was treated at Pattie A. Clay Regional Medical Center for a minor hand injury and then taken to the Madison County jail.
He remains in jail in lieu of a $250,000 cash bond.
