Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputies met with Kennedy Nalley who reported earlier in the day that someone shot at her, while she was in her car. 

Nalley stated she had dropped off a friend in the Holly Hills Subdivision and was leaving when a man stepped out in the roadway and began questioning her, while she was in the car.

Nalley told the man she had just dropped off a friend, the man quickly pulled out a gun and pointed it toward her car. When Nalley realized what was happening, she took off at which time she heard the male shoot her car. Her car, 2009 Lincoln MKZ had four visible defects caused by projectiles from a firearm. 

The investigation lead deputies to Mykhael Hicks of 8166 Holly Crest Drive. Mr. Hicks admitted to firing his weapon at Nalley's car. 

According to Hicks, he observed three people breaking into his vehicle which was parked in the driveway. Hicks said the people fled when he said he would get a gun. 

Hicks said when the people left he flagged down a vehicle and questioned the driver asked what was she doing. He said the reason he fired his weapon was because he was in fear that Nalley's call was going to hit him, then he changed his statement saying that he was firing at the vehicle in order to disable it so he could call the police. 

Hicks was arrested and transported to the Hamilton County Jail. He was charged with aggravated assault, felony reckless endangerment, and vandalism over $1000 and unlawful carrying of a weapon. Hick's bond is set at $45,000.
