Father, son killed; third man wounded

The Associated Press

        HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. — A father and son were shot to death and a third man was critically wounded outside a home Saturday night, police said.

        Harvey Sanders Sr., 56, and Harvey “Trey” Sanders III, 24, were found dead near the driveway of the house about 8:15 p.m. , said Hopkinsville police spokesman Mike Wood.

        David R. Brown, who lived in the house where the shootings took place, was charged Sunday with two counts of murder.

        Mr. Wood said police believe the Sanderses went to Mr. Brown's house Saturday night and an argument ensued. Mr. Brown shot Harvey Sanders Sr. and Trey Sanders with a handgun. Harvey Douglas Sanders, 20, the son of one victim and brother to the other, then shot Mr. Brown with a second weapon, Mr. Wood said.

        Mr. Brown was in critical but stable condition Sunday night at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.

        Harvey Sanders was charged with first-degree assault.
