Man faces attempted murder charge in Saturday night shooting


A 39-year-old man Seymour faces a preliminary attempted murder charge following a shooting reported to police Saturday night.

Cory Pollard was arrested following the incident reported to police at 8:55 p.m. Saturday.

Police Chief Bill Abbott said Pollard and another man, who was in his 40s, were in a black sports utility vehicle and stopped at a stoplight at Tipton and O’Brien streets.

A witness told police they saw the two men shoving each other in the vehicle, he said.

The altercation escalated and the passenger exited the vehicle, and Pollard then shot him in the left side, police said.

Abbott said police recovered a bullet and shell casing from a handgun as evidence.

“The witness heard the gunshot and then saw the victim take off running,” he said.

The injured man then went into Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, 524 E. Tipton St., and told people he had been shot.

He was taken to Schneck Medical Center and then airlifted to University of Louisville Hospital. An update on his condition was not available.

The witness who reported the incident stayed on the phone with dispatchers, Abbott said, and followed Pollard to Burkart Crossing Apartments, 1021 Stoneridge Drive, where police were able to take him into custody shortly after 9 p.m.


Pollard was interviewed by Seymour police before taken to the Jackson County Jail.
