NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – A Nicholasville man is behind bars after police say he fired a gun while officers were trying to talk to him Monday evening.
It’s unclear how the situation started, but, according to an arrest citation, police were at 49-year-old Erich Storck’s house at 500 Courchelle Dr.
While officers were talking to him, Storck fired several shots.
The citation says Storck showed “extreme indifference to the value of human life” with two of the bullets hitting his neighbor’s window and getting stuck in their bathroom wall.
Police say, seven people were in the neighboring home at the time, but no injuries were reported.
Storck was arrested on charges of wanton endangerment, wanton endangerment of a police officer and criminal mischief.
The citation says Storck is also facing a violation of his domestic violence order for having the gun. When he was told about that charge, the citation says Storck told officers “he would never be caught without a gun.”
