Fulton County Sheriff's Office investigates drive-by shootings

FULTON COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The Fulton County Sheriff's Office is investigating a recent rash of drive-by shootings.

At approximately 3 a.m. Saturday October 12, someone fired two shots through the master bedroom window of the Carlos Barriantos home on State Route 309.

The two shots appear to have been shot from the roadway in front of the home from a vehicle. 

The Barriantos family had five small children in the home at the time, but no one was injured as the two bullets traveled through the bedroom wall and into the kitchen and dining room area.

Then, on Sunday, Oct. 13, the Fulton County Sheriff's Office was notified at 5:13 p.m. by Jacob Davis on State Route 309 that someone had fired a shot through the front door of his home. He lives about ½ mile from the Barriantos home.

The shot traveled through a storm door and a metal exterior door, through the living room where Davis was lying on the sofa, into the kitchen and through a kitchen cabinet before exiting the house through the rear exterior wall.

Davis had an 11-month-old child in the home at the time of the incident.

Then, around 6:45 p.m. on Sunday, the Fulton County Sheriff's Office was notified by Sadawna Roberts on State Route 309 that someone had shot a hole through the front of her building. She lives across the street from Davis.

The shot went through the front of the building above the door and traveled through the interior wall which was OSB material. There was no one in the building at the time of the incident. 

There are no apparent motives in the case.

Nine counts of attempted murder may be possible.

There are a few leads the Fulton County Sheriff's Office are working at the time. The sheriff's office asks anyone with information to call the sheriff's office at (270)236-2545 with any information on the shooting incidents. All tips will remain confidential.

There has been discussion of a possible reward being offered from a citizen of Hickman.
