Deputies apprehend man wanted in shooting

Gay had been released from jail shortly before incident

RICHMOND — Madison County Sheriff’s deputies have apprehended the suspect in Monday afternoon’s shooting on Race and Spring streets.

Tony Ray Gay, 21, was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with first-degree assault, four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

Deputies were responding to a call on Canterbury Road about a man with a gun in the area, according to a Richmond Police Department news release.

“While investigating the report, officers encountered Gay and took him into custody without incident,” Brock said in the release.

Gay was not the subject of the complaint and was not armed when he was arrested, the police chief said.

Gay is suspected of shooting a male victim in the abdomen around 4 p.m. Monday just a little over an hour after he was released on bond from the Madison County Detention Center, according to online jail records.

Surveillance video from a nearby business captured images of the incident, which happened outside, and the suspect fleeing the scene in a 2001 Ford Taurus.

The victim was taken to the University of Kentucky Medical Center and is expected to recover, Brock said. The RPD did not release the victim’s name or give information about a possible motive in the crime.

Gay was arrested earlier Monday by Richmond police on a charge of failure to pay child support, Brock said. Gay was booked into the Madison County Detention Center at 10:13 a.m. and released at 2:54 p.m., online jail records show. A bond of $7,500 was paid for his release, according to a jail official.

Jail records show that Gay has been arrested seven times in the past three years on charges such as second-degree assault, fleeing and evading police, wanton endangerment and DUI.

In a related incident, a John Ballard Road man received several misdemeanor charges after police say he crossed the police tape at the scene of the shooting and then resisted arrest.

Dustin T. Fouts, 18, was charged with obstructing governmental operations, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Fouts was told by an RPD detective not to enter the taped-off area after he first attempted to do so.

Once the detective turned away, Fouts tried to walk through the crime scene again, according to the release.

Fouts was confronted by the detective, and he reportedly tried to push the officer out of the way, the release stated.

At that point, officers attempted to place him under arrested and he resisted, according to the RPD.
