Resolution remains possible in Petsch Lane shooting case

Consideration continues into a possible resolution in the shooting case against Jeffrey Proffitt, and he considers an offer from the Commonwealth. 

Proffitt—who is charged with first-degree assault, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon in connection with a shooting on Petsch Lane—appeared alongside public defender Jarrod Jackson Wednesday in Christian Circuit Court, who asked the court for more time to go over the offer from the Commonwealth.

Judge John Atkins gave him until March 27, which is when he set it for a pretrial hearing. 

As previously reported, Proffitt is accused of shooting a female victim in the leg at a residence on Petsch Lane in June. 

The victim had to be flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. 

Investigation determined that the victim and Proffitt had been in an argument when he allegedly retrieved a handgun and brandished it during the argument—the gun went off, striking the victim.
