MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - Four people were arrested after reports of shots fired at a home on Monday afternoon, August 24.
Jackey D. Edmonds, 51, of Paducah, was charged with five counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.
Bobby Woodall, 31, of Paducah, was arrested on two probation violation warrants out of McCracken County.
Nancy Harper, 29, of Paducah was arrested on one failure to appear warrant out of Marshall County.
Pamela Wright, 49, of Paducah, was cited to court for first-degree possession of a controlled substance - first offense methamphetamine, second-degree possession of a controlled substance - “spice” and drug paraphernalia - buy/possess.
According to the sheriff’s office, they responded to the 2300 block of HoveKamp Rd. around 10:30 a.m. on August 24 for gunshots and people running in the area.
Deputies learned someone shot at several people after he had taken a controlled substance. They were told the man was still inside the home and was armed with a handgun.
HoveKamp Road near Husbands Road was blocked for a short time during the brief standoff. After about 15 minutes, a deputy trained in hostage negotiations coaxed the man out of the house without further incident. The man, identified as Jackey Edmonds, was taken into custody.
While looking for potential gunshot victims, deputies found several witnesses that all told them Edmonds had smoked “spice” earlier in the day, and had an adverse effect. He allegedly pulled a handgun from his waistband and fired repeatedly at the other five people in the home.
According to the sheriff’s office, no one was injured in the shooting.
Deputies executed a search warrant at the home. They say they found evidence from a shooting, a .380 caliber Cobra pistol and a small amount of suspected methamphetamine, spice and drug paraphernalia.
During the investigation, deputies learned two of the witnesses were found to have outstanding warrants and were arrested.
Deputies say Wright was cited to court due to medical issues.
The sheriff’s office was assisted on the scene by the Paducah Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Mercy Regional Ambulance Service.
