ZOE, Ky. (WKYT) - A man is dead, and another man is charged with murder after a shooting in Wolfe County.

It happened Wednesday night at a cabin in the Red River Gorge.

According to Kentucky State Police, a 31-year-old Jarron Slayback, Cincinnati, was shot several times outside the cabins.

Witnesses stated they saw Slayback and the suspect, Troy Dunkelberger, of West Chester, Ohio, arguing when shots were suddenly fired.

Dunkelberger told authorities Slayback had gotten in his face and pushed him several times, threatening to cut him with a knife. He said when Slayback turned to talk to his sister, he shot at him five to seven times.

Dunkelberger claims the man was searching his pocket for something.

Dunkelberger was arrested and taken to the Three Forks Regional Jail. He is facing a first-degree murder charge.

The investigation is ongoing.
