BARBOURVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A southern Kentucky man has been charged with shooting and killing his father.

Kentucky State Police say Travis Carnes fired a gun at 61-year-old Harold Carnes Friday morning at his Knox County home.

WKYT-TV in Lexington and WYMT-TV in Hazard reported that family members in a nearby body shop heard two loud pops from Harold Carnes’ home. Police say Travis Carnes yelled for family members to kill him before police arrived.

State police said no one else was in the home when the shooting took place.

The body has been sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.

Travis Carnes was being held in the Knox County Detention Center. Jail records did not list an attorney.
