Police: Man faces charges after alleged gunfire

Staff report

A West Paducah man was arrested Friday after police allege he discharged a weapon near visitors at his home on Christmas Eve.

Jeremiah Wooley, 19, of Metropolis Lake Road, faces charges of menacing and third-degree criminal mischief.

Deputies with the McCracken County Sheriff's Department investigated a report on Tuesday of a weapon firing that occurred at Wooley's home. The visitors told police that Wooley's action caused them to feel a reasonable apprehension of imminent physical injury. The investigation also showed that Wooley had allegedly damaged the visitors' property before they left his house, said sheriff's deputy Todd Ray.

Wooley was arrested on a warrant during a traffic stop a short distance from his home. He was also cited for failure to use a turn signal, driving without a license, no insurance and failure to notify the Department of Transportation of his address change, Ray said.

Detectives also obtained a search warrant for Wooley's home, in which four rifles, ammunition, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found and seized.

Wooley was cited for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia as a result of the warrant, police said.
