Sheriff: Brother shot brother in lumber dispute

EVARTS, Ky. (AP) — An eastern Kentucky man has been charged with attempted murder after officials say he shot his brother in a dispute over lumber.

Harlan County Sheriff Marvin Lipfird told WLEX-TV in Lexington (http://bit.ly/1eh1IDs ) that Bill King of Evarts and his brother, Jerome King, were arguing over the lumber when the disagreement turned physical Friday evening.

Bill King told the sheriff Jerome King pulled a knife, prompting the shooting. Jerome King was shot in the groin and arm, but denies pulling a knife.

Jerome King was flown to Holston Valley, where he is in stable condition.

Lipfird arrested Bill King. He is housed in Harlan County Detention Center, charged with attempted murder.

The investigation is ongoing.
