Shooting injures woman

NICHOLASVILLE — A Nicholasville man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly shot into a vehicle, striking the driver, police said.

Isaiah "Ikie" Wilkinson, 31, also was charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, Nicholasville police said.

The incident happened about 6:15 p.m. Sunday, when police responded to a shooting call at Courchelle Drive.

Police said they were told by witnesses that there had been a confrontation between Wilkinson's girlfriend and the shooting victim. When the victim, who was not identified, drove toward her home, Wilkinson was standing in the street waiting for her, police said. As she drove by, Wilkinson fired one shot into the driver's-side window and struck the victim in the left shoulder, police said.

She was taken to University of Kentucky Hospital for treatment.

Police served a search warrant several hours later at Wilkinson's house and found several firearms, including the weapon they think was used in the shooting.

Wilkinson was taken to the Jessamine County jail.
