Vaughan, 43, was shot in the shoulder during the final minutes of a 20 hour-standoff in Latonia. Vaughan was taken to UC Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries. He was transferred from UC Medical Center to the Hamilton County Justice Center on Tuesday.

Covington Police cited post traumatic stress disorder as a possible trigger for Vaughan's actions and also obtained a mental health warrant to have him evaluated.
