Shooting kills Graves County man

BY CORIANNE EGAN cegan@paducahsun.com

An overnight shooting just outside of Mayfield left one man dead, Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said.

Redmon said his department received a call of shots fired on Hopewell Road, two miles east of Mayfield, at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning. When deputies and Kentucky State Police troopers arrived on scene, they found Marty Rudolph, 49, of Mayfield, laying in the driveway.

Rudolph had two gun shot wounds to his torso, Redmon said. He was taken to Jackson Purchase Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a few hours later.

Redmon said initial investigation indicates alcohol was involved. He said his detectives found that Rudolph had called a family member who lives at the Hopewell Road home and told that person he was coming over there and would cause bodily harm. No charges have been filed in the shooting. The shooter was not identified, Redmon said, because the investigation is ongoing.

An autopsy was scheduled for this morning. After the investigation is complete, Redmon said he believes he will allow detectives to present the case to a Graves County grand jury, which will decide if there is enough evidence to proceed with criminal charges or if the shooting was in self defense.
