Elizabethtown man arrested for fatal shooting in his front yard
Investigators believe Bradley Anderson shot a man in front of his home on Thursday night.
ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (WDRB) -- Elizabethtown Police have arrested a suspect in a fatal shooting that took place Thursday night.
Bradley Joseph Anderson, age 32, is charged with murder after he allegedly shot 26-year-old Stanley McFalda, of Vine Grove, in front of his home on Greenway Drive.
Police were called to Greenway Drive about 9:30 p.m. Thursday, after McFalda's body was found on a sidewalk in front of Anderson's house.
"He was lying on the sidewalk when we arrived, and fell where he was shot," explained John Thomas, a spokesman for Elizabethtown Police.
Thomas went on to describe the shooting as, "very much a public event, unfortunately."
"I had a friend text me just asking me if I had a shooting outside my house," said Manda Otten, a neighbor. "I said, 'Oh my gosh, what did you hear?'"
Investigators believe the two were arguing, when Anderson pulled out a handgun and shot McFalda in the head. Police say McFalda was not armed at the time of the shooting.
Police say the two men were acquaintances. Investigators are not sure what the argument was about.
Anderson remained at his home after the shooting and went in for questioning. He was arrested and charged with murder, and appeared in court Friday morning via a video conference. He is currently being held in the Hardin County Detention Center on a $500,000 bond. Authorities say he is considered both a flight risk and a danger to others.
This is Elizabethtown's third homicide since December.
