Woman charged in connection with ‘shots fired’ investigation in downtown Paducah
PADUCAH, Ky. (KFVS) - A woman was arrested and charged in connection with a “shots fired” investigation in downtown Paducah.
Keyja R. Hammonds, 26, of Mayfield, was arrested on a warrant charging her with first-degree wanton endangerment and receiving stolen property ($10,000 or more) after turning herself in to police.
According to Paducah police, they determined Hammonds was driving a stolen white Toyota Camry with Texas license plate NPN6352 on Sunday, December 4 around 2:30 a.m. when a passenger fired several shots into the air.
They say the charge stems from Hammonds driving the stolen vehicle the wrong way on Broadway at a high rate of speed, endangering pedestrians leaving the bar.
Detectives are still seeking information about the male passenger who fired the shots.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Paducah Police Department Support Services Division at 270-444-8553 or the police department’s main line at 270-444-8550.
