According to Pulaski County Sheriff Greg Speck, a Eubank man was arrested after he allegedly discharged a firearm into a vehicle near his residence on Ben Thompson Road.
At approximately 10:24 PM on February 10, 2018, Deputies Richard Smith and Bruce Blevins responded to a shot fired complaint on Smith Ridge Road. Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the victims. During the investigation, Deputies learned an adult male driver and a juvenile passenger were traveling on Ben Thompson Road when they encountered water across the roadway. As the driver attempted to back up and turn around, someone shot through the back glass of the vehicle. An Examination of the vehicle by Deputies revealed the bullet traveled through the back window, grazed the driver's side headrest, and exited through the frame near the driver's side window. Reportedly the juvenile passenger saw the perpetrator aiming at the vehicle and warned the driver resulting in the driver leaning forward to avoid the shot.
Sheriff's Deputies and units with the Kentucky State Police traveled to the residence near where the victims reported the shot was fired through the vehicle. When officers arrived, they encountered Danny L. Conley armed with a rifle. When officers announced their presence, Mr. Conley went back into the residence and shut the door. Danny Conley came out a short time later and surrendered.
Danny Lee Conley, age 65, of Ben Thompson Road Eubank, KY was charged with two Counts of Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree and lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.
