Female escort arrested following shooting at Florence apartment, police say
FLORENCE, Ky. (WXIX) - Florence police say a female escort was arrested on Saturday after shooting another escort at a man’s apartment.
Officers say they responded to a call around 6:30 p.m. at the Charleston Pines Apartments from a man who claimed he was being robbed.
Shortly after, police received a report of a woman at St. Elizabeth Hospital who had been shot. It was not until officers arrived at both locations that they realized the calls were related.
Investigators say they found out the man hired the two female escorts to come to his apartment.
There was an altercation between the two escorts and police say Brooke Litchfield, 21, fired a shot in the man’s direction but she missed and instead the bullet struck the other escort.
Officers say that Litchfield took the wounded escort to the hospital for treatment. The woman was then airlifted to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. She has non-life-threatening injuries, police say.
The names of the man and the other wounded escort have not been released at this time.
Litchfield was arrested and taken to the Boone County Detention Center.
Her bond was set at $250,000, per court documents.
She faces one count of robbery, assault, wanton endangerment.
The others will face charges of prostitution, police say.
