An Eastern Kentucky Shooting Sends One Man To The Hospital

An investigation is underway this morning into a shooting that sent one man to the hospital.

It happened just before five last night on Kentucky 589 in Morgan County.

Police say Oakie Fannin drove to the home of his ex-wife Tameila Burchett, just minutes after he called her and threatened her husband.

Authorities tell us that Fannin then drove through the yard, then turned and headed directly for Charles Burchett.

That’s when Mr. Burchett fired several shots at Fannin in self defense, hitting him several times.

Police say Fannin wrecked not long after leaving the home.

He is in stable condition this morning. So far no arrests have been made.

The case is expected to be presented to the Morgan County Grand Jury.
