Police: Man shoots nephew during Letcher home invasion

A man was shot in Letcher County late last week during an alleged home invasion attempt.

Kentucky State Police tells EKB News that Adam Henrickson was shot by his uncle, Robbie Fugate, at Fugate’s residence in the Blackey community of Letcher County.

KSP spokesperson Master Trooper Jody Sims said the two had been having problems for a couple of days and Henrickson was allegedly trying to get inside of Fugate’s residence to confront him. Sims said Fugate shot through the door, striking his nephew in the leg.

Henrickson was taken to Whitesburg ARH Hospital and then on to Pikeville Medical Center for treatment of injuries. Sims said no charges have been filed at this time.
