Police shut down parts of busy Jessamine County Tuesday afternoon after a reported home break-in and shooting. County dispatchers closed Brannon Road between Harrodsburg Road and Clays Mill Extended around 4:00pm.
Sheriff's deputies tell us they were originally called to a home on Summertree Drive for a reported burglary in progress. Police say they heard a gunshot and found broken glass when they arrived at the home, sparking the road closings.
After the SWAT team secured the scene, officers went inside the home and found a person inside with a self inflected gunshot wound. Police say it appears the person has some connection to the family in the house. The person apparently broke into the home to take his own life.
