LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A man is charged with murder after police say he shot another man who later died from his injuries.

An arrest citation says the shooting happened shortly after 6:00 p.m. Monday in the Kings Mountain area of Lincoln County. The complaint says 24-year-old Robin Dunn, of Danville, pulled out a handgun during an argument and fired several times at two people as they ran away.

The complaint says 33-year-old Gregory Galloway was hit once in the upper torso after he was shot. Lincoln County Coroner Farris Marcum says he was shot near the Mountain Stop Convenience Store,, walked inside, asked the clerk to call 911 and collapsed, and eventually died in the store. An autopsy confirms that Galloway died of a gunshot wound.

The other person fled the scene but may have also been injured, the complaint says.

Officials say Dunn got into a vehicle and drove off with another person and was later arrested after trying to run away from an officer.

Dunn is charged with murder and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
