Eddyville Police have released the name of this week's gunshot victim, but few additional details are being made available as the investigation continues.
Lt. Jaime Green said Joe Don Smith, 32, of Eddyville remains in stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, for injuries related to a shooting Monday at 312 Chestnut St. Police were dispatched to the residence at 4:12 p.m.
Smith was first taken by Lyon County EMS to Caldwell Medical Center in Princeton, but was later taken by the local ambulance service to Vanderbilt for further treatment of his injuries. Green could not confirm where or how many times Smith had been shot.
Green said no arrest has been made at this time, but added that “there are no suspects at large.” Because it is an active criminal investigation, no further information was made available.
Lyon County Sheriff’s Department and Kentucky State Police, as well as Lyon County EMS and Eddyville Fire Department assisted Eddyville Police Department at the scene.
Green said further details would be release when they become available.
