Police arrest man accused of firing shot

Police have arrested a man accused of shooting at another man in the parking lot of the Whitesburg Walmart.

The Letcher County Sheriff ’s Department arrested Larry Dean Baker, 32, Tuesday without incident after he was released from the Appalachian Regional Hospital Psychiatric Center in Hazard.

Baker was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment and placed in the Letcher County Jail.

The Whitesburg Police Department obtained the warrant on Baker early last week after he and another man struggled over a gun in the parking lot and it went off. The other person is involved with Baker’s exgirlfriend, police said.
