Around 8pm Tuesday, Casey County Deputies Tyler Luttrell, Jake Atwood, and Austin Harris were dispatched to 5457 Ky 906, Hustonville, KY, for a person being shot. Upon arrival officers did not see anyone outside. Deputies Atwood and Harris went to the next house over and made contact with Marcus Doren. Mr. Doren was detained and put him in the back of Deputy Atwood's cruiser.
Deputy Luttrell then made contact with Joseph King and Dakota Doren, who are brother and sister, and Marcus is Dakota's husband. Once we figured out no one had been shot and the scene was safe, all three subjects were separated and asked what had happened. Marcus and Dakota both stated that Joesph shot at Marcus.
Joesph stated that he and Marcus argued over a dog. Joesph then went outside with a .22 revolver fired at the dog six times. Marcus confronted Joesph and told him to stop shooting around his wife, then stood in front of the dog. Joesph then ran inside and grabbed his 9mm. Marcus then grabbed his Hipoint 45mm from his truck. Marcus stated that Joesph then ran around the vehicle and fired a round into the ground. Marcus stated that after he shot into the ground, Joesph then pointed his weapon at Marcus and fired it at him. Marcus and Dakota both stated that Joesph pointed the weapon at Marcus and shot at him.
Deputies asked Joesph several times if he shot at Marcus, and his story changed. At first he only shot the 22 revolver at the dog then he stated that he did go back inside and grabbed the Glock 9mm, but shot at the ground, not at Marcus.
Joesph was placed under arrest and transported to the Casey County Jail on charges of Wanton Endangerment-1st Degree (ATTEMPT).
