LOUISVILLE—Police in Kentucky say an argument over dog poop ended with a man shooting a woman in the face and repeatedly shooting another man.

The Courier-Journal reports 38-year-old Glenn Gholar Jr. has pleaded not guilty to first-degree assault in the Friday, April 26 shooting.

A woman was shot in the face and a man was shot multiple times.

Louisville police say the two wounded people suffered serious injuries and were expected to survive as of Sunday.

Officers say Gholar and the two people were arguing about dog feces in a yard when he shot them.

They say he fled in a vehicle and was pulled over by police, who then saw a revolver in “plain view” in the car.

Gholar was jailed as of Sunday night. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

A hearing in the case is set for May.

Crime Statistics

Crime declined in the first half of 2018 compared to the first half of 2017, the FBI said in February.

Preliminary statistics show nearly all offenses in the violent crime category declined.

Robbery offenses decreased 12.5 percent, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter offenses decreased 6.7 percent, and aggravated assault offenses declined 2 percent, the agency said. Rapes, however, increased by 0.6 percent.

When comparing data from the first six months of 2018 with the first six months of 2017, all property crime categories showed a decrease. Burglaries were down 12.7 percent, larceny-thefts decreased 6.3 percent, and motor vehicle thefts declined 3.3 percent.

The full 2018 crime report will be released later this year.
