Sheriff: Sister Shot Sister Over Facebook

A family feud fueled by Facebook. That's what the Mason County Sheriff says lead to one sister shooting another sister.

"All initial information we have it's in reference to a social media argument between these two," said Sheriff Patrick Boggs.

Sheriff Boggs says when officers responded to Walton Pike in Dover shortly before noon Wednesday, they found 24-year-old Arica Woodruff suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. She was taken to Meadowview Regional Medical Center before being airlifted to UK Hospital.

Officers arrested her half sister, 28-year-old Ankara Alvarado and charged her with attempted murder.

Rodney Woodruff lives next to the camper where Alvarado lives and where the shooting took place. He says Arica Woodruff used to be married to one of his relatives. Rodney says he heard the shots from his home and says he can't believe an argument online could end up like this.

"That's what's wrong with this world right now is Facebook. Everybody knows your business on there. You put anything on Facebook everybody knows it," said Woodruff.

Investigators say they aren't sure what the sisters were arguing about on Facebook or why it took a violent turn.

Arica Woodruff is listed in critical condition at UK Hospital. Her sister is currently in the Mason County Detention Center and is expected to appear in court on Oct. 14.
