    Weekend Domestic Incident Ends in Fatal Shooting

    By Sue Caldwell, Reporter
    In a press release from Laurel County Sheriff's Department, Sheriff Root said an early morning shooting on Sunday, October 25, which occurred on KY 30 approximately three miles north of London at approximately 3:36 am led to a male subject being shot at least once causing a fatal injury. According to the report, Deputy Hobie Daugherty and Deputy Tommy Houston were the first two deputies on the scene investigating an unknown problem at the residence. However, the shooting reportedly was apparently the result of a domestic argument at the Hwy 30 location between a boyfriend and girlfriend. Root said after the shooting, the suspect fled the scene into Jackson County where information was developed by Jackson County authorities on her whereabouts. Jackson County Sheriff Paul Hays took the suspect into custody on Moore Road in Jackson County and turned her over to the Laurel County Sheriff's Department.

    Jackson County Clerk Donald "Duck" Moore said we have had an outstanding turn out with the early voting and we still have the rest of this week and two days next week. I expect to see a lot more voting this year. As of noon today, Tuesday, October 27, we have had 2,700 people voting on the paper and machines. We are really excited about those numbers Moore said. On election day, November 3, there are six precincts that will be open for in-person voting in Jackson County. The six locations that will be open on election day are Bond Baptist Fellowship Hall, Pond Creek Fire Department in Annville, Gray Hawk Fire Department, Sand Gap Fire Department, Clover Bottom County Garage, and the old McKee Courthouse.
