ARJAY, Ky. (WATE) - Kentucky State Police troopers say they are still not sure why a Bell County man started firing his gun Thursday night at people sitting on a porch.

The shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. in the Arjay community.

Troopers say Albert Durham was riding up and down Garnett Loop on a four-wheeler.

For some reason Durham fired shots at the people on the porch. He then left the scene on the four-wheeler, but then returned and fired more shots at the people on the porch.

Tim Ogan was one of the people sitting on the porch of the home. He returned fire, hitting Durham.

Durham was flown to UK Hospital in Lexington for treatment of his injuries. He was later released.

Charges are pending against Durham.
