Shooting Survivor Not Cooperating With Police
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY - Authorities are continuing to investigate a shooting in Reidland earlier this month that left one man dead and another injured.

McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden says investigators have interviewed several people, and are examining electronic records obtained during searches to help them determine what exactly took place during the incident. The shooting happened around 11 pm at a home on Stiles Road near the intersection of Babbland Drive in Reidland. When deputies arrived, they found one man lying in the driveway with gunshot wounds, and another man inside the home dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

Police said the homeowner, whose name has not been released, told them two men kicked in his door and tried to burglarize it. Neither of the two men shot lived at the home. Deputies said the homeowner was there when the door of the home was kicked in and fired shots that struck the two men.

The man killed at the scene was identified by police as 39-year-old Toby William Reed of Cunningham. The injured man, 34-year-old Robert Christopher Ingram of Paducah, was transported by Mercy Regional EMS to a local hospital, and then airlifted to a hospital in Nashville, TN with apparent life threatening injuries.

Hayden says attempts to interview Ingram have not been successful, and his attorney informed investigators that he will not be making any statements about the incident.
