Authorities: Deputy shot at suspect
The Paducah Sun
A Marshall County deputy was involved in a shooting Tuesday near Calvert City after responding to an assault call.
The sheriff's office said deputies were dispatched to Lee's Lane after receiving a call regarding a disturbance. Sgt. Eddie McGuire was the first to arrive on scene.
When he arrived, McGuire said he was informed that Ealvis Ray Stevenson, 64, of Calvert City, had assaulted another man and then left to retrieve his firearm in order to shoot the victim.
McGuire said Stevenson returned to the scene riding an ATV, and he was ordered to stop and put his hands in the air. The sheriff's office said Stevenson did not comply with the McGuire's orders, and instead revved the ATV engine and headed toward the deputy.
Stevenson rode past McGuire, then jumped off the ATV and allegedly pointed a firearm at the officer. He was ordered to drop the weapon and he refused to do so, the sheriff's office said.
McGuire fired two rounds at Stevenson, the sheriff's office said.
Stevenson was taken to Marshall County Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
He was then booked into Marshall County Jail on charges of third-degree terroristic threatening, first-degree wanton endangerment, fourth-degree assault and resisting arrest.
McGuire was placed on paid administrative lead while the investigation continues.
