SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) — A man charged in what police have called an apparent road rage shooting has entered a not guilty plea to assault.
The Commonwealth Journal (http://bit.ly/16CdKma) reports say 23-year-old Troy A. McAninch of Stanford also waived his right to a preliminary hearing in the Aug.1 shooting of 54-year-old truck driver Luster L. Rose of Parkers Lake, which means the case will go to a grand jury.
Police say McAninch became furious at the way Rose was driving and got out to confront him when both vehicles stopped at an intersection in Somerset.
Police say the situation escalated quickly and an altercation took place at the intersection that resulted in McAninch producing a handgun and firing four times at Rose.
Police say Rose remains in the hospital in critical condition.
