Lincoln Co. shooting leads to receiving stolen property arrest

LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - There's a new twist in a shooting investigation we've been tracking. Thursday, police told us a Lincoln County man shot his 18-year-old granddaughter in the leg, then turned the gun on himself. While investigating that, police now say they also uncovered thousands of dollars in stolen property at the home of David Brummett, the accused shooter's son.

Sheriff Curt Folger told us Danny Brummett shot his granddaughter, an 18-year-old, in the leg while trying to shoot his wife.

"He had taken a couple shots at his wife while she was running behind the home into the woods," Sheriff Folger told WKYT Thursday.

Sheriff Folger says Brummett then walked to his son David Brummett's home on Simpson Road and shot himself.

"I wouldn't have thought it, but with domestic violence you don't know what's in people's minds or what they're thinking."

While deputies were investigating the shooting, they found some questionable items in David Brummett's home. They ended up charging David Brummett with receiving stolen property.

Kentucky State Police tell us they found more than 130 stolen guns, and dozens of stolen power tools, trailers and heavy equipment at the home. State Police are combing through all the things they say were stolen, trying to see if they can return it to original owners.

David Brummett is in the Lincoln County Jail. Danny Brummett is recovering at UK Hospital, he's expected to survive. His granddaughter, family tell us, is back home recovering.
