Laurel County Man Hospitalized After Being Shot With Bow

A Laurel County man is in fair condition after being shot with a bow.

The Sheriff's Department says it happened during an argument with his brother.

Investigators say 36-year old Ronnie Jervis and 29-year old Derek Jervis got into a fight over some property.

Police say Ronnie threatened Derek with a knife, and that's when Derek shot Ronnie in the arm with a bow.

Ronnie left the house, but reportedly came back to threaten his brother.

Police say Derek shot Ronnie again with the bow, this time hitting him in the stomach.

Ronnie Jervis was flown to UK Medical Center.

So far no charges have been filed.
