Five people were arrested at the emergency room last night after allegedly attempting to continue an altercation that began with a fight and shots fired earlier in the day.
The fight happened around 4:30 at the intersection of East 1st Street and Sycamore, where at least two people were injured after being hit in the head with some type of blunt object.
Shots were also fired during the altercation into a nearby house, where Hopkinsville Police say three children were sitting on the porch, though no one was hit by the bullets.
Officer Adam Robertson was with a victim at the Jennie Stuart Medical Center Emergency Room around 8:45 last night when five people allegedly came in to assault the injured person again.
Officer Robertson says 21-year old Shanae McNeal of Hopkinsville rushed at the male victim with a baseball bat and that she had 20-year old Antonio Donald of Hopkinsville and 20-year old Shadarion Hill, 19-year old Janoreon McNeal and 19-year old Gonte Hill of Oak Grove with her. Officer Robertson was able to stop the assault before it happened and arrested all five on retaliating against a witness charges.
The arrest card for Donald says he also had a concealed gun in his car and bullets in his shorts. He was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a concealed deadly weapon.
