State police were in Clark County Monday morning searching the Mountain Parkway for a gun that was involved in a fatal Estill County shooting.
Bruce Hartley, 48, of Irvine, has been charged with the murder of Angela Riddle, 25, also of Irvine. Hartley told police he discarded the weapon near the seven-mile marker on the Mountain Parkway, but officers did not find it, Trooper Chris Lanham said this morning.
Kentucky State Police say Riddle was shot Saturday evening on Patsy Road in Estill County. She was taken to Marcum-Wallace Hospital, where she died from her injuries.
Police are not releasing a motive in the shooting, and the results of an autopsy are pending. According to online court dockets, Hartley is also charged with attempted murder and tampering with physical evidence.
