A Hartford, Kentucky man was arrested on Thursday after the Ohio County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) says he was involved in an early morning drive-by shooting.

According to OCSO, the shooting was reported around 7:30 a.m. on Thursday in the 16000 block of State Route 136 in Hartford.

The caller said he was in his driveway when a maroon 2014 Chevrolet approached, slowed down, and fired one round from a handgun in his direction.

About 30 minutes later, the sheriff's office says deputies found the driver of the vehicle at his Hartford home. He was identified as 36-year-old Nathan Ray Humphrey.

OCSO says Humphrey admitted to firing the weapon at the caller. They say deputies found the handgun inside Humphry's vehicle.

Humphry was charged with Wanton Endangerment 1st degree and booked into the Ohio County Detention Center on no bond.

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
