A father-in-law is in jail in Laurel County.
He is accused of shooting his son-in-law.
It happened late Sunday night at a home on Littleton Road in East Bernstadt.
Neighbors tell us 31 year old William McDougal had just returned home when McGougal's father-in-law, 57 year old William "Billy" Mills, pulled up.
He allegedly started shooting into McDougal's house.
“He said that his father-in-law pulled up, he called 911. His father-in-law pulled up and shot through the door. The next thing he knew father-in-law, shot at him, and he got buck shot down both legs,” Eileen Fletcher said.
Neighbors tell us that the victim had been going through a bitter divorce and police say that could have been behind the motive for the shooting.
