Maysville police are investigating an early-morning shooting Friday that left one man with a life-threatening injury and another in jail.

Maysville Police Department officers were called to an apartment on Vine Street at 2:19 a.m., Friday in response to a reported that a man had been shot in the chest, according to MPD Detective Chris Conley. Upon arrival, officers discovered two men, both 19 years old, had been shot — one in the chest and the other in both hands, Conely said.

Also at home in the apartment at the time of the shooting was Kiskaden’s wife, a 6-month-old child and a 16-year-old male.

Both man were transported to Meadowview Regional Medical Center — one by ambulance and the other by a private vehicle — and both were later transferred by air ambulance to Lexington medical facilities.

The man who suffered the gunshot wound to the chest has been identified as Jacob Kiskaden, 19, of Vine Street, Maysville. He is being treated at an undisclosed hospital and underwent surgery for his injury, according to Maysville Assistant Police Chief Jared Muse.

The man shot in the hands has been identified as Camron C. Gibbs, 19, of Maysville, who was treated and released at UK Medical Center. He was later arrested and lodged in the Mason County Detention Center on a charge of first-degree burglary and two counts of contempt of court. He is being held on a $10,000 bond. He appeared in Mason District Court on Monday and entered a not guilty plea to the burglary charge. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.

Muse said handguns were the weapons involved in the event.

Muse said the case remains under investigation by Conley and Detective Adam Burns and there is a great possibility more arrests will be made in the case. A reason behind the incident has not been determined, he said.

In an unrelated event, MPD officers were called to a home on Ash Street in Valley View early Sunday following reports that someone had been stabbed.

Conley said the call was received by dispatch at 3:34 a.m., and officers responded to find a man had been stabbed in the arm and chest. He was airlifted to Lexington for treatment and has since been released.

A female fled the scene and has not been located, he said.

No arrests have been made and the case remains under investigation.
