CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The man who shot his friend with a bow and arrow after an argument entered a guilty plea in a Hamilton County courtroom on Monday.

Harry Spivey pled guilty to attempted murder and felonious assault charges.  He will be sentenced on Nov. 29.

Spivey was arrested in September when he was found by police in Georgia.

According to Elmwood Place Police, Spivey was found in McDounough, Ga. at a person's house, telling the people living there that he had shot his best friend, and that they needed to call authorities.

McDounough is 30 miles south of Atlanta and almost 500 miles from Elmwood Place.

Investigators said Spivey was arguing with his friend, 50 year-old Douglas Stacey.

The pair were at Stacey's home on the 400 block of Beech Street when neighbors reported hearing an argument.

Sometime between then and 6:30 a.m. authorities say Spivey shot Stacey three times with a bow and arrows. Authorities say Stacey was asleep when the attack happened and that when police arrived he told police Spivey shot him.
