Berea man charged with assault after allegedly shooting man multiple times

A Berea man faces an assault charge after allegedly shooting another man multiple times Tuesday night, according to a new release from the Madison County Sheriff's Office.

John H. Durham, 67, was charged with first-degree assault and was being held in the Madison County jail.

Durham is accused of shooting Daryl Pigg, who was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. A UK spokeswoman said Wednesday that there was not a listing for anyone by that name at the hospital.

The shooting was reported at Durham's home in the 900 block of Dogwood Drive in Berea. Deputies found that Pigg had been shot several times.

The shooting is under investigation.
