Man accused of firing shots talks from jail

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT)- A Perry County man charged with wanton endangerment is telling his side of the story.

Jimmy Sizemore was arrested for wanton endangerment nearly four weeks ago.

The incident happened on Walker Branch Road near the Hazard Community and Technical College campus, which put the campus on lockdown.

Police say Sizemore fired shots inside a home while his wife and five kids were inside, but Sizemore says they have the facts wrong.

“I want to make sure that they know for a fact that the gun accidentally went off, and there were no children in the house, above any and all," said Sizemore.

Sizemore pleaded not guilty to the charges, and was in court for a preliminary hearing on June 25th.
