Middlesboro Police arrested George Fisher on Tuesday afternoon for allegedly shooting at his wife and another man.

According to a press release, officers responded to Gordon Lane in Middlesboro at 12:16 p.m. Tuesday in response to a call from a female (later identified as Charlene Fisher) reporting that her estranged husband had just shot at her and left the scene.

The woman identified the man as Fisher and told police that he had shot at her and a male (later identified as John McDowell) that was present at the residence. While on scene, officers collected physical evidence and statements from independent witnesses and victims that led to the arrest of Fisher a short time later.

George Darrell Fisher, 47, was taken into custody at 2019 1/2 Cumberland Avenue, near his business the Middlesboroug Pawn Shop. He was charged with two counts of attempted murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and violating a Kentucky EPO/DVO.

Fisher was lodged in the Bell County Detention Center, where he remains with no bond.

Officer Kenny Vanover is in charge of the investigation. He was assisted by Lt. David Buis, Sgt. Joe Holder, and patrolmen Clay Hurd and Jeremiah Johnson.
