HARRODSBURG - A man is dead after he shot and wounded his estranged wife and another man Monday afternoon at Stone Manor Motel on South College Street.
Scott Clark, 33, of Lawrenceburg was dead at the scene and, Melissa Clark, also of Lawrenceburg, is in serious condition at the University of Kentucky Medical Center where she was airlifted Monday afternoon.
