One dead in fatal shooting in Henry County

An altercation between two men has left one dead.  It happened around 3:30 Sunday afternoon in New Castle.  That's in Henry County.

31-year-old Joseph Daniel Burch was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound to the chest.  Burch was not a resident of Osage Estates but was visiting the shooter Robert Elston.  Apparently a conversation got heated and Burch left.

Elston followed him and then shot him.  Elston was an apparent friend.  Elston was taken into custody at the scene.  The case is under investigation by Kentucky State Police.
