LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Shively man is facing an attempted murder charge after police say he tried to kill his own cousin.

Police arrested Ronald Montgomery over the weekend after he went to his cousin's West Buechel home, pointed a gun at him and told him, "This is your last day on Earth. I'm going to kill you."

In a struggle over the gun, witnesses told investigators the gun went off, hitting Montgomery. He then drove away.

When officers interviewed Montgomery, they say he told them the victim had attacked him. Officers say he had a bruise on his chest from the gunshot.

Following a court appearance this morning, Montgomery was released on home incarceration.
