POLICE: Trio robbed woman in Louisville, shot her in the face
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been charged with attempted murder after an alleged incident that took place last month in broad daylight.
It happened on Dec. 20, near the Walgreens on Cane Run Road, near Terry Road, at 3 p.m., according to an arrest warrant. Police say 22-year-old Deveron M. Shively and two accomplices demanded money from a woman, and when she denied having any, they shot her.
She was struck three times: once in the left side of her face, once in her upper torso and once in her upper arm, according to the warrant.
The three suspects then took her cell phone and ran away, leaving her lying at the scene, police say.
The woman was able to make her way to the nearby Walgreens, and police were called. She was taken to University Hospital, where she received treatment.
Police say she was later able to identify Shively as one of her attackers. According to the arrest warrant, Shively and his accomplices, "showed a complete disregard for human life."
Shively is charged with attempted murder and first degree robbery, according to the warrant. He was arrested on Tuesday, Jan. 7.
The two accomplices are still on the loose.
