A lover's quarrel between two men ends with a shooting, kidnapping, and police chase. Last night the Taylor County Sheriff's Department arrested twenty four year old Harry McCrobe, Jr. of Elizabethtown.

Police say McCrobie went a house in Campbellsville looking for his former roommate and lover, thirty one year old William Shively. When McCrobie aproached the door, Shively's sister, 35-year-old Melissa White, answered. The two then argued and she slammed the door. McCrobe came back with a gun and shot White in the arm and chest.

After McCrobe shot White, he ordered Shively to leave with him at gunpoint. McCrobe drove Shively from Campbellsville to Greensburg. A short time later Shively escaped at the Shell station in Greensburg.

Police then apprehended McCrobe outside of Columbia. He is being held at the Marion County Jail with seven felony charges. Meanwhile White is recovering from the gunshot wounds at the University of Louisville Medical Center.
