By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY - A home invasion early Wednesday morning in Graves County led to four arrests.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a home in the 1000 block of Ballard Road around 6:00 am, after a passerby said she heard a woman screaming and then gunshots.

Deputies say 43-year-old Edward Ellegood, 45-year-old Tammy Threatt and 38-year-old Daniel Moore, all of Mayfield, had been at a home occupied by 39-year-old Derek Wilson and 30-year-old Heather Hughes earlier in the night. After an argument, Ellegood, Threatt and Moore were reportedly told to leave the home.

According to police, a short time later all three returned, and Ellegood and Threatt made unlawful entry into the home. Wilson reportedly grabbed a shotgun and forced the pair outside, and a fight ensued between Wilson and Ellegood. During the fight, Hughes allegedly fired a shot from the shotgun.

Deputies said the fight came to an end when Wilson was knocked unconscious. Ellegood, Moore and Threatt got in their vehicle and as they were leaving, Wilson reportedly fired multiple shots at the vehicle, striking it twice near the passenger door.

Hughes was arrested and charged with wanton endangerment and tampering with physical evidence. She was lodged in the Graves County Jail.

Deputies later found Ellegood, Moore and Threatt at a home on Prittchett Road. Ellegood was arrested on burglary and assault charges. Threatt was arrested on charges of burglary, menacing and probation violation for a felony offense. Both were lodged in the Graves County Jail. Deputies say Wilson was arrested Thursday morning and lodged in the Graves County Jail on assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and wanton endangerment. 

Moore was cited on a criminal trespass charge, and released with a court date.
