Man arrested in connection to 2017 shooting incident

Alexander Sizemore

A man wanted in connection to an alleged shooting incident that occurred back in April 2017 has been brought back to Pulaski County to face charges.

Alexander Ayers Sizemore, 33, of Corbin, was booked into the Pulaski Detention Center at approximately 8:19 p.m. Sunday night after being served with an eight-count indictment charging him with first-degree burglary, four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, and three counts of criminal mischief.

The charges stem from an investigation that began on April 18, 2017. The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office reported at the time that Sizemore unlawfully entered the residence of an ex-girlfriend on Castlewood Court around 6:34 p.m. that evening and assaulted her.

Though he was forcibly removed from the residence by the victim's current boyfriend, Sizemore then allegedly shot several rounds from a handgun at a vehicle parked in the driveway of the victim's residence. He then left -- seeking medical treatment for injuries he sustained during the altercation.

In the meantime, the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene. Their investigation determined that two vehicles were damaged by gunfire and one bullet had gone into the house next door. The spent bullet was found in a bathtub. No injuries were reported from that home, which had been occupied by four people at the time.

Sizemore is scheduled to be arraigned in Pulaski Circuit Court on Thursday. At press time he remains lodged at PCDC in lieu of a $50,000 cash/property bond.

The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only and that person is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty or otherwise pleads guilty.
