Shooting suspect out on $25K bond
May 18, 2006 12:00 am
May 10, 2006 – A Lebanon man accused of shooting another man from his pickup truck while in traffic on West Main Street is out on bond.
Kenny R. Oliver, 48, of No. 3 Donnell Court, was out on his $25,000 bond Tuesday following his Friday arrest. He is charged with criminal attempt at criminal homicide and set to face a criminal court judge July 31.
Police believe Oliver shot 59-year-old David R. Paris while the pair were sitting side-by-side in their pickup trucks on West Main next to McDonald's on Friday afternoon. Oliver was arrested immediately following the shooting by a Tennessee Highway Patrolman, who witnessed the incident. Officers also recovered a semiautomatic handgun from his vehicle.
The victim, David Paris of Lebanon, is still recovering from his injuries at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Lebanon Police Lt. Koy Lafferty said late Tuesday afternoon.
The Lebanon man was shot twice in the mid torso while inside his pickup truck as he traveled east down West Main Street on Friday afternoon. He was in "critical" condition Friday, but Lafferty said his current condition was unknown Tuesday.
Paris, however, has provided a police statement.
"He is conscious and talking," Lafferty said late Tuesday night, noting the elderly man is improving. "We have interviewed him."
Late last week, Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said the two men were "known for having an ongoing dispute." Lafferty confirmed the "feud" between the two is apparently "domestically related."
Neither the lieutenant nor police chief disclosed any further details about the motive.
