Police: Two Shootings In South-Central Kentucky Linked

Posted: Updated:

CAVE CITY, Ky. (AP) - Police said they believe two deadly shootings in south-central Kentucky are linked.

Police told WBKO that the call about the first shooting came in just after 6 p.m. on Monday and officers arrived to find 28-year-old Jamie Tapscott of Horse Cave dead at her residence.

Less than an hour later, they received another report of a man being shot in nearby Cave City. Officers said they arrived to find 32-year-old Jason Horton dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound behind his home.

Police said they think Horton shot Tapscott, and then killed himself.

The bodies were taken to Louisville for autopsies. Police continue to investigate.
