A Barbourville man is dead after he reportedly was shot after he tried to break into a vehicle parked at a home along Morris Lane in Heidrick, according to Kentucky State Police Post 10 — Harlan Public Affairs Officer Trooper Shane Jacobs.
Randy Shane Maybery, 30, fled after he was approached by the homeowner and a neighbor, both of whom were armed, Jacobs said. A short distance later, the neighbor and Maybery fought. The neighbor then shot Maybery, Jacobs said.
The confrontation came after the homeowner had called 911.
