New Information On Whitley County Shooting

We now have more information about a shooting we first told about last night.

Police tell us Elmer Paul Hart, Jr. was found shot several times in a gravel lot with apparent gunshot wounds. The Whitley County Sheriff's Department says they found Hart in a gravel lot along Kentucky 6 in the Woodbine community after responding to a 911 call Friday afternoon.

The Corbin Times Tribune reports there was gunfire exchange between Hart and his future son in law, 41 year old Robert Green and that police also found a large amount of marijuana in Green's home. Green and Hart's daughter, 26 year old Julie Moore, both face drug charges and were taken to the Whitley County Detention Center.

Hart is expected to survive.
