HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a man who called police after fatally shooting another man in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, has been charged with murder.

According to WSMV-TV in Nashville (https://bit.ly/1Hlap1Z), police say officers were sent to a Hopkinsville residence late Friday night after receiving a phone call from 29-year-old David Markle, who told them he had just shot someone.

When the officers arrived on the scene, they found Markle and the body of 27-year-old Justin Fish. Police say Fish had been shot multiple times. A handgun was also found at the scene.

Markle was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. He was being held Sunday at the Christian County Jail on a million dollar bond.

Online court records do not show if Markle has a lawyer who can comment on the case on his behalf.

The case remains under investigation.
