WALTON, Ky. (WLWT) — Police are saying a road rage incident led to a shooting at a Northern Kentucky truck stop Tuesday.

One man is dead after he shot another man and then himself. WLWT reports that the shooting happened about 10 a.m. at the Pilot Travel Center off Interstate 71/Interstate 75 in Walton.
