PINE KNOT, Ky. (AP) - Police say a 22-year-old Eastern Kentucky man is the primary suspect in a shooting that left his mother dead and his father critically injured.
Dustin Cordell of Pine Knot is being held in a jail in Campbell County, Tennessee, where he was arrested after a high-speed pursuit by Kentucky State Police crossed state lines. Police say charges are pending.

Trosper says the father later identified his son as the shooter.
Trosper says investigators have not determined a motive.
