AUXIER, Ky. — A Kentucky man has died after Kentucky State Police say his ex-girlfriend shot him when he entered her home.

News outlets report troopers say 35-year-old Brandon Endicott entered Krystal Shepherd’s home in a Floyd County trailer park Tuesday morning. KSP says Shepherd shot Endicott, who left and was found dead in a neighboring yard. A stray bullet went into a neighboring trailer.

Shepherd had placed a warrant for assault for Endicott last week. Court records say Endicott had repeatedly hit and used his knee to strike Shepherd in the face, resulting in 16 stitches and broken bones.

Floyd County Coroner Greg Nelson says Endicott’s body was sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.

Shepherd has not been charged. The case will be presented to a grand jury.
