Two Georgia men were arrested Friday in connection to a Thursday shooting in Jessamine County.
According to a JSO news release, Mark J. Buckland, 45, of 8400 Zebulon Road, Macon, Ga.; and Michael N. Buckland, 36, 6659 Hwy 87, Macon, turned themselves in at the Jessamine County Detention Center around 8 a.m. Friday morning.
Both men were charged with two counts of criminal attempt to commit murder.
The arrests stem from a shooting that occurred around 1:20 p.m. Thursday at 728 Chinkapin Drive in Nicholasville.
"It appears the victim and a relative were leaving the neighborhood driving a pick-up truck, and as they approached the intersection of U.S. 68, (they) realized numerous shots were being fired at them," a release from the JSO stated.
Chief deputy Allen Peel said one person suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Apparently, the victim's pick-up truck was struck several times in the driver's side door causing the window to shatter, and the shards struck him in his left eye.
When deputies arrived at the Chinkapin address, the victim met with them and was "alert,” the release stated.
The victim and passenger were seen by Jessamine County EMS but refused transport to the hospital.
Their names have not been released nor has the type of gun used in the shooting.
For several hours, deputies on the scene closed off Burr Oak Lane — the entrance to Forest Hills Estates, which is a gated community not far from Southland Christian Church on U.S. 68.
Traffic on U.S. 68 (Harrodsburg Road) was only slightly impeded until the subdivision was reopened before 4 p.m.
The charges are Class A felonies, punishable by no less than 25 years in prision, if convicted.
