Man shot over parking spot

Altercation occirred near Ky. 80-Ky. 461 intersection

A Somerset man was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center Thursday evening after he was shot during an altercation regarding a parking spot east of Somerset.

According to Lt. Brett Whitaker of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, authorities responded to a report of a shooting at approximately 4:48 p.m. at 8791 east Ky. 80, next to J.C. Deli at the intersection of East Ky. 80 and Ky. 461.

Ronald Patrone, 65, of Denton Phelps Road, Somerset, was shot once in the back during an altercation with his wife, Kimberly Patrone, 45, of Denton Phelps Road, and Bernard L. Bray, 66, of 8791 East Hwy. 80.

Kimberly Patrone had gotten into an altercation with Bray about parking her car in his driveway, and Ronald Patrone became involved “over Bray’s treatment of his wife (Kimberly Patrone),” according to the sheriff’s department.

Kimberly Patrone is an employee at J.C. Deli, according to Whitaker, and he said she had parked her vehicle in his driveway in the past.

“Apparently there was at least one prior confrontation,” Whitaker said. “But it is the first time it has resulted in violence.”

Ronald Patrone was airlifted from Shopville Community Park and transported to UK Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries. He was discharged later in the evening.

Bray was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, a Class C felony, and he was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.

Kimberly Patrone was charged at the scene with alcohol intoxication.

Somerset Fire/EMS, the Shopville-Stab Volunteer Fire Department and Kentucky Motor Vehicle Enforcement assisted at the scene.

An investigation is underway by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.
