During the early afternoon hours on Sunday, July 1, after an argument between a father and his daughter’s alleged boyfriend, a male victim was shot and killed, according to Paris Police Chief, Bob Hundley.
At 5:16pm, Paris Police responded to the 911 call of a reported shooting in the 2800 block of Willow Bend Dr.
A younger male victim was transported to Paris Regional Medical Center – North Campus where he was pronounced dead after receiving a single gunshot wound to the chest.
According to Police Chief Hundley, an older male is currently in custody after telling officers he fired the fatal shot, which happened at his residence.
Preliminary information indicates that the younger male was in a relationship with the man’s daughter.
In an article on the Examiner written by Sheila Carroll (www.examiner.com), ‘a neighbor of the residence stated, that earlier in the day the 29-year-old male had spoken with the homeowner by phone. The homeowner had warned the 29-year-old male to stay away from the house on Willow Bend.’
The younger man, not heeding to that warning, and the homeowner broke into an alleged quarrel that ultimately resulted in the gun being pulled and the shot fired by the homeowner, leading to the younger man’s death.
