Shootout ensues after shotgun armed estranged husband breaks into wife’s home, deputies say
MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Deputies are investigating a shooting in Madison County.
The sheriff’s office says they were called Thursday morning to a home in the 1000 block of Mule Shed Lane, west of Richmond, for a report of an ongoing domestic situation.
We’re told the situation started when Tommy Edington, who had a protective order against him, went to his estranged wife’s home, armed with a shotgun.
According to the sheriff’s office, the woman, Amanda Edington, was inside the home with two other men, her son James Spicer and friend Hogan Rose.
The sheriff’s office says Amanda saw her estranged husband coming up to the home with the gun. She and the two men went into the master bedroom, locked the door, then locked themselves in the bathroom of that master bedroom.
The sheriff’s office says Tommy Edington kicked open a door to get inside the house and then fired his shotgun into the master bedroom door. Hogan then went out into the master bedroom and started firing back. Tommy Edington and Rose both sustained gunshot wounds.
As the husband was reloading his shotgun, Rose and Spicer escaped the home. As the wife was trying to escape, the husband grabbed her and barricaded himself in a room with her.
When deputies arrived at the scene, the sheriff’s office says Tommy Edington surrendered without incident and Amanda Edington was not hurt.
Rose was treated and released from Baptist Health Richmond.
Tommy Edington was taken to UK Hospital. The sheriff’s office says his condition is not known, but his injuries were initially believed to be non-life-threatening.
The sheriff’s office says he is facing charges of attempted murder, burglary, violation of a Kentucky EPO/DV and possession of firearm by a convicted felon.
