Teen turns himself in to police, charged with assault

A teenager charged in connection with a Feb. 14 shooting of a Paducah man turned himself in Thursday afternoon, according to the Paducah Police Department. 

Police said 18-year-old Kiante Vaughn turned himself in at the U.S. Marshals’ office in the Federal Courthouse in downtown Paducah. He was then turned over to detectives with the Paducah Police Department. 

Vaughn was charged with the non-fatal shooting of Johnny Harmon III that happened around 2:30 a.m. on Valentine’s Day outside the Brickhouse on Boyd Street. Police Detective Chris Baxter said U.S. marshals assisted in looking for Vaughn in the time since the shooting. 

Vaughn was interviewed and jailed at McCracken County Regional Jail.
