Officers of the Marion City Police Department were sent to the area of 510 Grant St. for the report of a shooting. Through the course of the investigation, it was found that this stemmed from a domestic dispute. The male suspect 77 year-old Kenneth N. Morgan from Marion pulled a gun on the female victim and her friend.
When the female victim was able to get out of the house, Morgan followed her outside and began shooting at her as she ran from the property. Morgan was still found to be in possession of the firearm when officers arrived. He was taken into custody without incident and is being held on the charge of Attempted Murder at the Multi County Jail. Formal charges from the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office are expected to be filed later this date once the case is reviewed. No one was injured out of the incident and it is still under investigation.
