Authorities now say they believe a shooting in Henderson County Friday night was not a random home invasion, but rather a dispute between two acquaintances.

Kentucky State Police reported Saturday that troopers responded to Bluff City Road in Hebbardsville around 7:40 Friday night after 69 year old Henry Butler called Post 16 in Henderson and stated he had just shot 36 year old Freddy Gibson of Hebbardsville as he was trying to break through the front door. KSP indicates Butler fired two rounds from his 20-gauge shotgun, and Gibson then fled the scene where he wrecked his vehicle about ½ mile from Butler’s residence.

According to state police, Gibson was airlifted to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville where he is listed in stable condition.

KSP says no charges are currently expected to be filed; however this case will be presented to a grand jury once all the information from the investigation is gathered.
