Hopkinsville Police investigated shots fired on Durrett Avenue early this morning, with no one injured in the incident.
The report says 18-year old Lesel Killebrew and two other males went to the area of the Durrett Avenue-Poplar Street intersection to collect a debt just after 2 this morning and an argument ensued.
As Killebrew drove away, two males shot at the vehicle at least six times, striking the left rear tire. Killebrew made it to Bentley Street before he noticed the damage and called police.
At least one suspect is listed on the report and the investigation continues.
A Hopkinsville man was arrested on attempted arson charges last night for allegedly attempting to set his girlfriend’s mobile home on fire.
Witnesses told police that 21-year old Lucas Todd Miller set a piece of paper on fire at 7 Middle Street and said he was going to “burn the place down.” One witness chased him out of the trailer, with Miller dousing the paper in a bathroom sink before fleeing the scene.
Officers caught up to Miller a short time later and charged him with third degree attempted arson charges. Police say they found the paper that Miller had set on fire.
