LIBERTY TWP, Ohio - A man who allegedly shot at a neighbor during a fight at their trailer park Sunday has been charged with attempted murder and felonious assault.
Paul E. Maye, 52, of 214 Jacobs St., fired a revolver and grazed his neighbor's head, the Butler County Sheriff's Office said. As Maye and Joshua Warren, 26, of 215 Jacobs St., struggled for the gun, another shot was fired and hit a porch railing next door.
Warren was then able to subdue Maye, the sheriff's office said.
Both men were taken to West Chester Medical Center for treatment. Maye was still there as of Monday morning.
The incident happened about 2:30 p.m. at the Countryside Village Mobile Home Park.
Laura Alcorn noticed the fight just before the second bullet struck her porch railing.
"I was inside and then I heard a loud noise. so I opened my screen door and saw a younger guy getting out of the car, just whaling at this older guy," she said.
Becky Blanton said she saw her bloodied neighbor sitting in a vehicle.
"I was in there watching TV and heard a bunch of screaming," said Blanton. "My neighbor was in his truck, a bunch of blood pouring down his face, and everybody was screaming that he shot at someone. That's all I know."
Police said they didn't know what started the incident.
"We're not quite sure about the details as of this time," Butler County Det. Kim Peters said Sunday. "It's just speculation how it started."
