Man accused of shooting three people now in custody

The hunt is over for a man wanted for a shooting spree that killed one person and injured two others.

Kentucky State Police arrested 28-year-old Jimmy Levering Monday afternoon.

He was reportedly hiding in the woods in the Fallsburg area of Lawrence County.

That's near a home where police say Levering shot a man and a woman he'd been staying with.

The woman, Sherry Smith, died.

Police say Levering then shot his wife, Wilma, in the couple's vehicle.

She managed to escape and call 911.

Police charged Jimmy Levering with several counts, including murder and assault.
