REST STOP KILLING
2 dead after murder-suicide at Kentucky rest stop; Police say reason for shooting unknown

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, July 16, 2014 6:57 AM EDT
FRANKLIN, Ky.


Kentucky State Police troopers say two people are dead after a murder-suicide at a rest stop on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line in Franklin.

Trooper Jonathan Biven says a man walked up to a parked car Tuesday at about 9:25 p.m. and shot the driver before turning the gun on himself.

The man in the car, 40-year-old Jamie Plymel of Spring Hill, Tennessee, was pronounced dead at Franklin Medical Center in Simpson County, Kentucky.

Biven says the gunman died at Skyline Medical Center in Nashville. His name had not been released as of Wednesday morning.

Biven says the shooting at the welcome center along Interstate 65 appears to have been random and there's no apparent connection between Plymel and the shooter.

The investigation is ongoing.
