LONDON, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a man fatally shot his girlfriend after an argument and then was shot and killed by his own father.

The Laurel County Sheriff's Department says in a news release that 26-year-old Ashley Beckner and boyfriend 29-year-old Michael Allen, along with their 3-year-old daughter, were visiting the home of Allen's father Saturday evening when an argument occurred.

Authorities say Allen fatally shot Beckner multiple times with a pistol. The release says he also fired at his father, Charles Allen, and in the direction of his daughter and his father's wife.

Charles Allen fired a shotgun at his son, killing him.

The investigation into the shooting is continuing.
