Authorities arrested a Nashville man Tuesday after he shot his estranged girlfriend and another woman, according to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called to the 1700 block of Lucas Hollow Road around 4:13 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a call from one of the victims, saying she had just been shot and the shooter was walking down the road.


The two women were treated for their gunshot wounds at the scene by EMS and then transported to area hospitals.

Both were listed in stable condition Tuesday night.

When deputies arrived, they located the alleged shooter, Joshua Asher, 30, and arrested him without incident.

He was then transported to the Brown County Jail and charged with attempted murder, criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, battery with serious bodily injury, domestic battery and invasion of privacy.

Deputies say Asher was served with a protective order on behalf of his estranged girlfriend Monday.
