Kentucky: Man says shooting was self defense

Lexington, Kentucky

From the Lexington Herald-Leader of February 18, 2008
Man says shooting was self defense

A man is claiming self defense after police say he shot and killed a Montgomery County man.

Police say 27-year-old Mike Dunn fatally shot 46-year-old Greg Rudd on Sunday. Dunn tells WKYT in Lexington that he had no choice but to shoot Rudd.

Dunn says Rudd pointed a gun at him and threatened to kill him before he fired.

He says he went to find out why Rudd and another man were on his property without his permission. And when he approached the men, he says they began arguing.

Police have not made an arrest in the case but they are still investigating.

Dunn says he hopes Rudd's family can forgive him.
