MEADE CO., KY (WAVE) - A woman was shot outside of a home in rural Meade County. The sheriff's department says her former husband pulled the trigger.

It happened Friday evening on Rabbit Run Road not far from Ft. Knox and Flaherty, Kentucky. A neighbor said the woman ran to her home.

"He kept shooting at her," said the woman, who did not want to give her name. "She made it to my door. I got her in the door, got her lay down on the ground. He came over here trying to get back to her. I told him I wasn't letting him in the house with a gun because my kids were in there."

The neighbor says the shooter went back home and was arrested when police showed up without any problems.

She says the woman was taken by helicopter to the hospital and was alert when she left.
