A father and son are in the hospital after a violent confrontation early Wednesday.
Investigators say the son, Codie Sexton, was stabbed then shot outside a home on Shields Road in Bath County.
Investigators say the person responsible then ran over the victim's father, Troy Sexton, after being involved in a head-on crash.
Police arrested the suspect, Bennis Dunn, in Montgomery County Wednesday afternoon.
Investigators believe all three men were intoxicated at the time.
The father and son were airlifted to UK Hospital for treatment.
"High rate of speed, back and forth, some reckless driving. Then a car coming down hit a truck right here. It jammed into the tree. I went back in to get my shoes on to see if everyone was alright, then the next thing I heard was two gunshots," says a witness and a neighbor, Anthony Newport.
Authorities say that Troy Sexton was run over by the vehicle in the scuffle and that his son, Codie Sexton was shot.
"I saw him laying there on the ground and I was helpless and I couldn't help him," says Mary Sexton, the wife and mother of the two victims.
She doesn't understand how this could happen, "Stunned and disbelief because they were friends. We all were friends with him."
Authorities believe Bennis Dunn is responsible for both of their injuries.
"He hugged me and he still had a gun. The gun that injured your son. Yes, the gun that injured my son," adds Sexton.
Sexton says Dunn told her, he didn't mean to do it. She tried to reason with him before he took off in an open field.
"If something happened to either one of them, there is no reason for me to even go on. That's my son and that's my husband. They're my life," Sexton says.
