SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT) - A man involved in a standoff with Kentucky State Police in May has been released from the hospital.

Charles Wilson, 51, was shot during an hours-long standoff in Eubank, Ky.

Kentucky State Police were called out to a home on Smith Ridge Spur after Pulaski County deputies reported a man firing shots at one of their vehicles.

That's after a man called deputies, saying Wilson shot at him when he tried returning a lost dog to the home.

Pulaski County deputies, KSP, and KSP's Special Response Team were all at the home.

KSP tells WKYT the standoff lasted for hours and ended with shots fired.

The special response team fired shots hitting Wilson. He was taken to UK Hospital.

Troopers say the man who brought the dog to the home has non-life threatening injuries, and no deputies were injured.

Wilson is now facing several charges including attempted murder and wanton endangerment.
