Donation account to benefit 14-year-old shooting victim

Family identifies teen as David Lacy

By Kristina Belcher, Published:

A donation account has been set up to benefit 14-year-old David Lacy, who family members identified as the victim in Monday evening’s shooting at the Duckers Mobile Home Park.

Lacy’s aunt, Oshula Warner, told The State Journal that her nephew still isn’t awake but he’s improving — now listed in stable condition at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center.

“Right now the only thought is him getting better,” Warner said. “Honestly, everything else has been back-seated.”

Sheriff Pat Melton said 55-year-old Samuel Isaacs, who also lives in the trailer park, shot Lacy multiple times Monday before running off. He was later found, allegedly still armed with a handgun, on the railroad tracks near Duckers Lake Golf Course, under the Chenault Road overpass. 

It took officials about four and a half hours of negotiations before Melton said Isaacs surrendered and was taken into custody, charged with first-degree assault, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and resisting arrest.

Warner said Lacy underwent surgery on his legs and stomach Monday night after he was flown to UK. Family members said they still don’t know why this happened.

“Until he wakes up, we don’t know,” she said.

The family is hoping donations can help with their bills while they stay with Lacy at the hospital.

“Medical expenses and living expenses right now,” Warner said. “His mom’s not wanting to leave his bedside.”

“We’re doing fine,” Lacy’s father, Roland, said. “Just hanging in there and doing the best we can for him.”

Donations can be made at any Farmers Bank branch or at the McNamara & Jones law firm under the name “David Lacy.”

“We want to make sure that we thank everybody for their prayers and support,” Warner said.
