    The Sheriff of Gallatin County (KY), Josh Neale, was shot in the abdomen at approximately 10:30 PM on Tuesday night during a hostage situation after a domestic situation.

    The Sheriff was transported to University of Cincinnati Hospital by helicopter and he was alert and conscious and the injuries are listed as non-life-threatening.

    The gunman turned the gun on himself after shooting the Sheriff.

    Prayers for the Sheriff.

    wprebeck Got quacks?

    Local news ( reports he was released from the hospital this morning (Wednesday) . If accurate, I would assume he took a round in the vest, since a .357 Magnum to the gut would required a bit more than an overnight stay.
