A suspect remains at large after a shooting incident in Francesville prior to midnight Thursday.

Pulaski County Sheriff Michael Gayer stated that the 911 Dispatch Center received a call from 55-year-old Rhonda Danford of Daviess County that she had been shot by her husband 31-year-old Barry Danford, also of Daviess County at a Francesville residence.

Emergency personnel arrived at the Francesville home and found that Rhonda Danford suffered a single non-life threatening gunshot wound to the arm during a domestic situation. She was transported to Pulaski Memorial Hospital.

Barry Danford fled the scene before police arrived at the residence. The Sheriff’s SWAT team members scoured several locations in the immediate area and in Medaryville but did not find the suspect.

The details of this incident were forwarded to the Pulaski County Prosecutor for formal charges and a State Police Crime Scene Tech was called to the scene to process the evidence.
