Arrest Made in Graves County Home Invasion
By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY - UPDATE: A man has been arrested in connection to the Tuesday shooting in Graves County.

Early Tuesday, November 19, Graves County deputies received a call from 27-year-old Anthony Dominique Crittendon who told officers there had been a shooting at his home after two men had attempted to rob him.

Graves County Deputies and Kentucky State Police responded to the home and reportedly found one man that had been shot multiple times, along with Crittendon.

Crittendon told officers that a woman had knocked on his door at approximately midnight, and asked to use his phone. Crittendon told the woman that he would go get his phone for her to use, when two masked men reportedly forced the door open with guns drawn.

Crittendon told officers that at this point he pulled out his own weapon and fired at both men. One of the men fled, while the other collapsed in the home.

Officers got a search warrant for the home in order to investigate and recover evidence at the scene. During the search of the home, officers reportedly found approximately $8,000 in small bills, just under two pounds of marijuana, scales, packaging supplies, along with other items. Detectives also say they found two masks that they believe the suspects were wearing when entering the home.

A short time later Crittendon was arrested and is being charged with firearm enhanced trafficking in marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was lodged in the Graves County Jail.

The names of the suspects that were shot are not being released at this time. The investigation is ongoing and detectives say more arrests are expected.


Authorities are investigating an apparent Tuesday morning home invasion and shooting in Graves County.

Graves County Sheriff Jon Hayden says the incident happened shortly after 12 a.m. at a home on Tom Drive. He said the investigation showed the homeowner shot two people, one who was found on the scene and one who was located a few minutes later in Mayfield. Both were taken to hospitals where they were listed in stable condition. One person reportedly fled the area.

Kentucky State Police troopers are also assisting with the investigation.

Hayden said there is no immediate danger to anyone in the area, but didn't share any additional information.
