An Owensboro man faces serious charges after police say he tried to kill his ex-girlfriend.

Owensboro Police responded to an attempted burglary call in the 2200 block of Hutch Lane around 2:30 Sunday morning.

Once on scene, officers discovered the incident wasn't a burglary - but an attempted murder.

Investigators say 21-year-old Christian Young fired a single shot into his ex-girlfriend's bedroom.

Fortunately that shot missed and no one was injured.

Young is being held in the Daviess County Jail; his bond is expected to be set in court tomorrow morning.
