Shooting suspect sets home on fire

COVINGTON, Ky. (WKRC) -- A trailer is a shell of its former self Monday night after a fire that was set following a domestic disturbance.

Officers found a man shot just after midnight in the Rosedale Mobile Home Park in Latonia.  Police say a couple got in a fight, the man fired a gun, and a bullet hit their son in the arm.
Police say the suspect then set the trailer on fire and tried to escape.

"We came out to see what was going on and they said, 'Well the trailer is on fire and there's oxygen tanks in there,' so everybody close is gonna have to get out of their trailers," said neighbor David Wilson.  "By the time that I got to the bottom of the steps the oxygen tanks blew up."

There was a little girl inside the home at the time.  Police were able to rescue her.  They also arrested the shooting suspect.
Officials have not released his name.
