Multiple reports say a person is dead in Clay County, and Kentucky State Police are investigating.

Sister station WYMT is reporting the shooting occurred on Sacker Road Friday morning in the Burning Springs area.

KSP says the information they have about the shooting is limited.

"Troopers and detectives did arrive on scene and they did discover a deceased male. The Male's identity is being withheld at this time pending notification of family members," Lloyd Cochran, Public Information Officer, Kentucky State Police Post 11 told WMYT.

Investigators have not announced any information on a potential suspect or victim.

Neighbors in the area told WYMT the area is usually quiet.

"No I wouldn’t think nothing like that would happen here it’s usually a pretty peaceful neighborhood, I mean I go to sleep with my doors unlocked wide open every night just about and sleep like a baby," said Jason Hubbard who lives nearby to the shooting.
