LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A man is dead and a murder investigation is now underway in Lincoln County.

The coroner says 33-year-old Gregory T. Galloway, of Liberty, Ky., was shot Monday night outside the Kings Mountain convenience store on Highway 501. He went inside the store for help and the clerk called 911, but Galloway was pronounced dead at the scene.

An arrest citation from Kentucky State Police shows that they arrested Robin Dunn late Monday night and booked him into the Pulaski County Detention Center on a murder charge.

That arrest citation says just after 6 o’clock Monday night Dunn, Galloway, and at least one other person got into an argument in the King’s Mountain area of Lincoln County.

Dunn drew a gun and fired several times as Galloway and another person ran away. Galloway was hit and KSP believes the other person may have been shot as well.

The arrest citation says that Dunn was found later that night in Stanford. The citation says he ran from officers, but they were able to arrest him just before midnight.

Dunn is facing charges of murder and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon. We have reached out to Kentucky State Police for more information about this investigation.
