Police in Lexington, Kentucky, found a man down on the front lawn of a house Tuesday morning and shot multiple times — and then they charged him.

William J. Redd, 40, was charged with fourth-degree assault, domestic violence and violating a domestic violence order, WKYT-TV reported.

Turns out investigators said Redd was shot by his ex-girlfriend in self-defense, the station reported, and that the shooting was an isolated incident.

A WKYT reporter noted that several residents on the street said it wasn't the first time police had been seen at the house.

Redd was taken to a hospital; police told the station he was conscious but in serious condition.
