Two Deadly Shootings, Linked To Each Other

Kentucky State Police are investigating two shootings happening Monday night.

KSP first received a call about a shooting in Horse Cave and minutes later a call came in about another shooting in Cave City.

Just after six Monday night police received a call from a seven-year-old boy saying Jamie Tapscott, 28, had been shot on Water Street in Horse Cave.

When police arrived on the scene, the woman was dead.

This is being investigated as a homicide.

Police then received a call at about 6:45 of a man being shot in Cave City just miles away.

Police believe this man, Jason Horton, 32, was the alleged shooter from the previous house.

We are being told his gunshot wound was self-inflicted.

The man was found dead behind his house on Bale Street.

Both bodies are being taken to the medical examiners office in Louisville.

We'll have more information as it comes available.
