Frankfort police officers arrested one person following a domestic dispute Saturday afternoon. 

Gene W. Long, 65, was charged with first-degree assault (domestic violence) after police responded to a home in the 800 block of Columbia Avenue, which is off Myrtle Avenue, around 2 p.m.

According to a news release from the department, one man was treated for an apparent gunshot wound by Frankfort Fire and EMS. He was taken to Frankfort Regional Medical Center and is being treated for his injuries. Police did not identify the man. Capt. Dustin Bowman said on Monday that the victim underwent some medical procedures and "is doing good." 

Bowman said the victim and Long are relatives and other people were in the house during the altercation. The police spokesman said that it was unclear what the dispute was about as of Saturday evening.

"This is an isolated family incident," Bowman said. 

Long was taken to the Franklin County Regional Jail, Bowman said. He is being held on a $25,000 full cash bond. 

Long is listed as an owner of the residence on the Franklin County property valuation administrator’s website.
