LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Police say a man fatally shot his father in Fleming County and then killed himself as police approached his truck.

Reported David Crawford killed his father, Ricky Crawford, early Thursday during an alcohol-fueled argument.

Officers investigating the death saw David Crawford drive past the home where both men lived and followed Crawford's truck into Rowan County. Fleming County sheriff's deputies and state troopers pursued Crawford for a short distance, until he stopped in the middle of Ky. 1722.

Police said David Crawford remained in the truck cab and fatally shot himself.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
