Oak Grove Police are investigating a stabbing incident from overnight, though few details are available.
Hopkinsville Police were called to Jennie Stuart Medical Center early this morning after a man showed up with stab wounds to the chest. He would later be flown to another hospital by Air-Evac and his condition is unknown.
A woman who answered the phone at the Oak Grove Police Department said no details could be released this morning. The Kentucky New Era reports a suspect has been taken into custody for the incident that happened on Eddy Street.
The National Weather Service continues to call for a chance of snow in the area Christmas night and Wednesday morning, but just how much and for how long is the big question.
A low pressure system will trek across our general area sometime Tuesday, but where it goes exactly will be the determining factor of if the southern Pennyrile gets snow, ran or a mix.
Forecasters say they expect moderate to heavy accumulations somewhere, but the bullseye appears to be to our north for the time being. Any deviation in the system’s track could mean more snow or no snow for Christian, Todd and Trigg Counties.
Models have been inconsistent in where they place the low pressure system, which will move in from the southern plains northeast through Tennessee and into Kentucky. An influx of cold air will place the northwest portion of precipitation in the “snow zone.”
Any precipitation that does fall will be accompanied by windy conditions and temperatures Wednesday are not forecast to get out of the mid-30’s.
Stay tuned to the WHOP family of stations for the latest on this developing weather situation.
Hopkinsville Police were able to safely and quickly put an end to a hostage situation on Summit Street Saturday morning, with a local woman arrested following the incident.
It happened at 1204 Summit around 11am, when 37-year old Briana McCombs of Hopkinsville allegedly went into a residence with a knife and threatened to harm four people inside if they tried to leave.
She allegedly argued with one of the individuals, while the other three sat in the living room. When police made contact with someone in t he residence, McCombs released the four individuals, but threatened to come after them if they didn’t keep their mouths shut about the situation.
McCombs was arrested and charged with four counts of kidnapping, first degree burglary and retaliating against a witness in a legal process.
