KSP searching for wanted man following Russell County murder

JAMESTOWN, Ky. – Kentucky State Police says it is searching for a man after the shooting death of his brother.

KSP says last night around 9:49 p.m., the Russell County Sheriff’s Department requested assistance to investigate the discovery of a dead male.

Troopers responded to Fox Lane in Jamestown, where police say they learned Charles Maynard, 22, of Jamestown suffered fatal gunshot wounds.

During an investigation, KSP says it determined Charles Maynard was shot by his brother, Lee Maynard, 18, of Jamestown. Before law enforcement arrived, KSP says Lee Maynard fled the scene.
