Hazard, Kentucky

From December 6, 2005 WKYT channel 27:
One person is dead after a shooting Tuesday night in Perry County.

Officials said Robert Shepherd was pronounced dead at the Hazard ARH.

Police were called to a home on Moore Street in Hazard around 8 p.m. where they found Shepherd shot in the chest.

The shooting happened in Shepherds' parents house. Shepherd lived next door.

Police said he was shot by his stepfather, Herman Trent, after what appears to be a domestic dispute.

"Preliminary investigation as of right now appears to be possibly a case of self-defense, but again, we are still investigating," said Hazard Police Chief Ronnie Bryant.

No charges have been filed against Trent.
