GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. - Sheriff's deputies have apprehended two men they believe shot and injured three people in rural Graves County late Tuesday night.

Authorities arrested two men a few hours apart Wednesday morning after the men allegedly shot and injured three people in rural Graves County. Kenon Andrews and Jacob Carder are charged with 3 counts of attempted murder in the home invasion on Rule Shack Rd.

According to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, the two suspects opened fire at the house late Tuesday night. Four people were in the house at the time of the shooting, and three of those people suffered gunshot wounds.

The one person that was not injured called 911 and alerted authorities of the incident. Sheriff's deputies arrived on scene as the two suspects were fleeing the property. The suspects led the deputies on a chase until they eventually crashed their vehicle near the intersection of KY 339 and KY 1748 in Dublin.

After the crash, both suspects fled on foot. Around 3:00 a.m. residents along Dublin Hill Road heard a disturbance. When they awoke, they released their dogs who then cornered 29-year-old Water Valley resident Kenon Andrews until police arrived on scene. He was apprehended immediately upon their arrival.
