MOUNT WASHINGTON, Ky. — Officials say a man shot two people and then himself in Kentucky.

News outlets report authorities say 48-year-old Michael Smith drove to 50-year-old Ronald Fowler’s house in Mount Washington on Saturday night and fatally shot Fowler and 46-year-old Pamela Leonard after a confrontation. Police say Smith left the scene and called 911 after returning to his Shepherdsville home.

The Shepherdsville Police Department responded to Smith’s home and found him dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The investigation is ongoing.

WAVE-TV reports that Fowler and Leonard were on their second date, and Smith had posted on Facebook that Leonard betrayed him.
