Police launched a multistate manhunt after a Tuesday shooting in Mercer County in which a man died and a woman was wounded, and two Lexington television stations reported a possible break in the case Wednesday night.
Authorities were searching for James M. Kelley, 52, considered armed and dangerous, according to the Mercer County Sheriff's office.
At 8 p.m. Tuesday, deputies responded to a call about a shooting at 711 Ashley Camp Road in Harrodsburg. When they arrived, deputies found John Dacci, 53, dead from a gunshot wound.
The woman, who was not identified Wednesday, was taken to an area hospital.

On Wednesday night, after a shooting in a parking lot outside Pattie A. Clay Regional Medical Center in Richmond, WLEX-TV and WKYT-TV reported that police had found Kelley's vehicle at the scene.
Glenna Lear, a supervisor at the hospital, said one person was injured in the shooting, at about 9 p.m., and she said the person was taken to University of Kentucky Hospital.
Mercer County Sheriff Ernie Kelty said Wednesday night that he was on his way to Lexington, and he declined to comment further.
The Mercer sheriff's office had told Lexington police and authorities in Tennessee that Kelley could be in either location because he has relatives in both places, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.
Investigators had said Kelley could be armed with an automatic rifle, two handguns, a knife and a Taser. He has been known to drive a gray or silver 2007 Nissan Titan pickup, license number 7067-BC, police said.
