Man charged with murder after shooting son in Bell County

Police in Kentucky and Tennessee join forces to track down a man accused of killing his son.

Middlesboro Police were called to a shooting on Parker Lane just before eight Thursday night.

They found 23-year-old Richard Goodman Junior suffering from a gunshot wound. He later died at the hospital.

Meanwhile, Cumberland Gap National Park rangers spotted 47 year old Richard Goodman Senior heading toward Tennessee.

Just 20 minutes after the shooting, Claiborne County Deputies arrested Goodman.

He's now awaiting extradition to Kentucky on a murder charge.

Police are not saying what started the domestic dispute.
