A woman was shot after midnight Monday morning, and her boyfriend is charged with assault and endangering the couple's child, Kentucky State Police said.
Serena Sears, 33, was arguing with Enoch Watts, 46, at their home in Soft Shell in Knott County. Sears and the couple's child were in a car when she was shot once, injuring both arms. State police in Hazard were called at 12:18 a.m. Monday. Watts was arrested, taken to McDowell Appalachian Regional Healthcare and treated for minor injuries before he was taken to Kentucky River Regional Jail on charges of first- and fourth-degree assault, wanton endangerment and endangering the welfare of a minor. He was being held on $100,000 bond, a jail official said.
Sears was taken to Hazard Appalachian Regional Healthcare and then to University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, where she was in stable condition, state police said in a press release Monday afternoon.
