Not guilty plea in Pulaski shooting

McAninch waives preliminary hearing

SOMERSET —  The Stanford man accused of shooting a local truck driver August 1 waived his right to a preliminary hearing last week in Pulaski District Court.

     Troy McAninch, 23, has been charged with first-degree assault in connection to an alleged road rage altercation which occurred at the intersection of KY 914 and KY 1247 east of Somerset.

    McAninch was arrested for shooting Luster “Levi” Rose, 54, of Parkers Lake. According to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, McAninch was a passenger in a vehicle which had earlier pulled out in front of Rose. The truck driver allegedly followed the vehicle in such a way that infuriated the defendant before eventually passing.

    When Rose stopped at the 914/1247 traffic light, McAninch got out of the pickup he was riding in and approached the semi. Rose then stepped out carrying a wooden club to confront McAninch, according to the sheriff’s office, and during the course of the ensuing altercation, McAninch produced a Glock handgun. He allegedly shot Rose four times.

    The victim was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in critical condition. Rose was subsequently removed from the hospital’s public directory, preventing the Record from obtaining an updated medical status.

    McAninch was arraigned on August 2, when he entered a plea of not guilty. His bond was set at $25,000 cash. He was released from Pulaski County Detention Center after posting $50,000 in equity.

    On Wednesday, McAninch appeared with attorney Kenton Lanham for a preliminary hearing but the case was waived on to a Pulaski grand jury.

    Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Greg Ousley told the Commonwealth Journal that his office would “sit down with the defendant and defense attorney…and talk about the case prior to McAninch potentially being indicted.”

    McAninch’s next court appearance is scheduled for October 16 in Pulaski District Court.
