September 25, 2018

BARBOURVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky state police say a homeowner fatally shot a man whose truck got stuck trying to leave his property. The man’s friend then got a gun and traded fire, shooting the homeowner in the abdomen.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported Monday that charges are pending against 71-year-old Glenn Powell, of Barbourville. Police say Powell ordered 57-year-old Glenn Edwards off his property and then shot him in the back after Edwards’ truck got stuck in a ditch.

Police say Edwards’ friend has not been charged. Powell is in stable condition. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
