Police: Man fatally shoots estranged wife, other man in northern Ky., then injures self


DRY RIDGE, Kentucky — Police say a northern Kentucky man has killed his estranged wife and another man before shooting and injuring himself.

Grant County Sheriff Chuck Dills told media that 35-year-old Shaun E. Hiles fatally shot 35-year-old Nicole Hiles and 32-year-old Larry G. Whiteker on Monday night along a roadway in Dry Ridge.

Dills said he appears that Shaun Hiles was angry because he believed his estranged wife was dating Whiteker. Dill said Hiles followed the two in a vehicle before crashing into them, and then fatally shot both before turning the gun on himself.

Dill says Hiles is being treated in the hospital for at least two gunshot wounds.
