KSP Investigating Another Drive-By Shooting In Eastern Ky.

Posted: Updated:

PIKE COUNTY, Ky. (EKB News) –  Kentucky State Police are investigating a third drive-by shooting in Eastern Kentucky.

According to EKB News, KSP is still investigating two drive-by shooting incidents in Floyd County that happened within a two day period last week.  Those shootings happened less than a mile from one another.

Saturday, a community in Pike County saw a drive-by shooting incident of its own. The incident happened at a home on Hurricane Creek while the family watched television.

Officials with KSP say there is no evidence linking the shootings, but they are asking for anyone living in the area for surveillance footage.

Residents inside the home say they are lucky to be alive.

“We were sitting there watching TV and it was real quiet. All of a sudden we started hearing the guns going off and right here is one of the holes where they shot into my living room. There’s the window-sill and here is a big hole that it cut out of my fireplace. The shot went in through here and got lodged right there. The good Lord was definitely watching over us. We can thank Him for watching over us like He was because we both like to have gotten killed," Ruth Clevinger told EKB News.

If you have any information regarding this incident you are urged to call Kentucky State Police Post 9 at 606-433-7711. Callers can remain anonymous.
