By news admin

A western Kentucky man has been charged with assault and wanton endangerment after police say he shot another man then held officers at bay for three hours.
Owensboro Police Sgt. David Powell says 59-year-old Michael W. Carter of Owensboro shot 42-year-old Scotty M. Miller in the arm at Miller's home early Monday. Powell says that Miller was the boyfriend of Carter's daughter.
Powell says police went to Carter's home at about 6:40 a.m. CDT Monday and broke out the front window of Carter's home about three hours later. Carter surrendered without incident.
Carter was sentenced to fifteen years in prison for a 1978 conviction for manslaughter. Carter was being held in the Daviess County Detention Center. Jail records did not list an attorney.
