Kentucky State Police are investigating a shooting in Clay County Sunday that left one man dead.
Troopers identified the victim as Jimmy W. Hoskins, 47, of Rockcastle County.
Police said Hoskins was shot and killed on Blackey Branch Road in Clay County just before 2 p.m. Sunday after an argument with another man.
That man, whose name was not released, has not been charged pending further investigation, according to the state police post in London.
Never miss a local story.
Police said the shooting was preceded by an argument between Hoskins and the other man. Afterward, the unnamed man went to a small outbuilding where he was living, police said. Troopers said Hoskins then entered the man's dwelling in an attempt to force him to leave.
The man then shot Hoskins, who died at the scene, police said.
Troopers said they consulted with the Clay County Commonwealth's Attorney's office and determined that no charges will be filed now. Once an investigation is completed, the case will be turned over the commonwealth's attorney for consideration, police said.
