BARREN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Police are searching for two Glasgow residents who they warn should be considered "armed and dangerous" after a man was shot Saturday night.

The Barren County Sheriff's Office said they are searching for 53-year-old John W. Wheat and 34-year-old Ashley N. Finn.

Police say the pair pulled guns and demanded money from 22-year-old Joey Brown, also of Glasgow, Saturday evening in a church parking lot on Oak Grove Church Road.

Police say Finn reportedly shot once into the air and Wheat shot Brown at point-blank range, hitting him in the neck.

Brown was flown to the University of Louisville, where he is being treated.

Wheat is facing charges of first-degree assault and first-degree robbery, while Finn is facing charges of first-degree robbery.

Police say the pair are armed and dangerous and encourage anyone with information about their whereabouts to call police immediately.
