Macon men charged with attempted murder in Kentucky

Kentucky law enforcement officers have charged two Bibb County men with two counts of attempted murder after allegations that they fired shots at a man as he was driving in Nicholasville, Ky., just outside Lexington.

Mark J. Buckland, 45, of Zebulon Road, and Michael N. Buckland, 36, of a Ga. 87 address, turned themselves in Friday at the Jessamine County Detention Center, according to a Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office news release.

The men were released later Friday, each on a $50,000 bond.

The Nicholasville man and his passenger were leaving a neighborhood when “numerous shots” were fired at the truck they were riding in. Bullets struck the driver’s side door and the driver’s side window shattered.

Glass or shrapnel struck the driver near an eye. He was treated by emergency medical workers, but he refused to be taken to a hospital.

Chief Deputy Allen Peel said the passenger was not injured.

The shooting stemmed from on ongoing domestic dispute between the Bucklands and their family members that started Wednesday in front of a Hobby Lobby, Peel said.

Michael Buckland declined to comment Monday. Mark Buckland could not be reached for comment.
