KSP Post 13 Troopers are investigating
Hazard, Ky. (May 21, 20180 – An argument between two men escalated to gunfire at a home in Letcher County last Friday evening. Troopers with Kentucky State Police Post 13 in Hazard were called to a residence on Square Dance Road in the Carcassonne community in response to reports of a man being shot during an altercation. Troopers Anthony Trotter, Michael Burton and Wade Adams responded to the scene.
The preliminary investigation determined that 44 year old Adam Henrikson of Blackey and his uncle, 57 year old Robert Lee Fugate of Carcassonne had been several verbal disagreements over the past two days. Henrikson was allegedly attempting to gain entry into Fugate’s residence through the front door when Fugate fired a single gunshot in the direction of the door. Adam Henrikson was struck in the legs by the shot. He was initially transported to Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital by Letcher EMS but was later sent to Pikeville Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
No charges have been filed at this time, but this incident remains under investigation by Tpr. Anthony Trotter with KSP Post 13.
