The suspect accused of shooting a man inside a Frankfort hotel room Saturday has turned himself in to police. But a possible motive for the shooting is still unknown.
Frankfort Police Maj. Rob Richardson said Christopher McGowan, 27, came to the Public Safety Building with his attorney, Ted Shouse, just before 11 a.m.
He was then arrested on a charge of second-degree assault.
Richardson said officers responded to Frankfort Regional Medical Center just past 11 p.m. Saturday, after Alonzo Scott, 37, of Frankfort, came in with a gunshot wound.
Scott said he was staying at the Bluegrass Inn on Versailles Road when someone entered his room and began assaulting him. Scott was shot in the head sometime during that assault.
Scott drove himself to the hospital. His injuries were not life-threatening, Richardson said.
Richardson said Scott later identified McGowan as the man who shot him.
Police still are not releasing a possible motive for the crime.
McGowan is currently lodged in the Franklin County Regional Jail on a $25,000 full cash bond.
