Wolfe County Shooting Leaves Ohio Man Dead


Kentucky State Police are reporting that an Ohio man has died after being shot several times outside of a Red River Gorge cabin Wednesday night.

According to police, Troy Dunkelberger shot the man following an alleged confrontation involving a knife. Dunkelberger claimed that prior to shooting him, the man had pushed him several times and threatened to cut him with the knife. The victim was shot several times when, as Dunkelberger told police, it appeared that he was searching in his pocket for an item.

Witnesses told officials that shots were suddenly fired in the middle of the argument. Dunkelberger was taken into police custody and transported to the Three Forks Regional Jail where he was charged with Murder.
