A man was arrested and charged with attempted murder after shooting his girlfriend in Clay County early Saturday, police said.
The woman, Alisha G. Tye, 35, was in critical condition at University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, according to a news release from state police.
State police said Tye, of Manchester, ran from her home to a neighbor’s home to get away from her boyfriend, Samuel Cornett, 52, but Cornett went to that home and forced his way in.
Once inside, police said Cornett fired several shots at Tye.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office contacted state police at 12:36 a.m. about the shooting on Skull Branch Road.
Cornett was arrested soon after and charged with five counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, attempted murder (domestic violence), first-degree assault and first-degree burglary.
