One man is dead after a shooting late Saturday night in Laurel County.
Police say 26 year old Joshua Lee Broughton was killed by a homeowner in the Keavy community after he allegedly tried to enter a home and threaten the homeowner. The name of the homeowner is not being released and police say no criminal charges are pending.
Last summer, Kentucky passed a new law giving homeowners the right to use deadly force against an intruder in their home.
The case will be presented to the Laurel County grand jury.
