LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a deadly shooting that happened Friday afternoon.

Officials say the shooting happened off Allen School Road at a residence following a suspected domestic dispute.

The sheriff says 59-year-old Charlie Sizemore was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound. His wife, 56-year-old Elaine Sizemore, was airlifted by PHI helicopter to UK Hospital and is in critical condition.

Investigators say there was domestic argument inside the home that resulted in Elaine Sizemore being shot twice by her husband, once in the neck and once in back, before her husband turned the gun on himself.

Investigators say there were nine children present outside at the time of the shooting.
