KSP Find Gun in Pond
The gun suspected to have been used in a double shooting on Roots’ Branch last week has been found by Kentucky State Police Friday in Jackson County.
After investigating the shooting, KSP Trooper Jeff Senters determined the shooter to be 21-year-old Jeremy Fusner of Clay County.
Officers responded to the incident, which occurred around 10:52 AM Thursday morning. A neighbor had called 911 after one of the shooting victims, Michael D. Jones, 33, stepped out on the front porch, asking his neighbor to call police, saying there’s been a shooting.
Trooper Senters, along with Sheriff Kevin Johnson and Deputies Brian Jackson and Dewey Grubb, were the first to respond and contained the scene until other officers arrived.
