Jan. 16, 2013 @ 08:28 AM

HAZARD, Ky. (AP) — Police say a domestic dispute was the cause of a shooting on a Kentucky college campus that killed two people and wounded a third.

A man, a woman and a teenage girl were shot Tuesday night in a parking lot at Hazard Community and Technical College. The adults were killed and the juvenile was taken to a hospital. The extent of her injuries wasn’t clear.

Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen told WYMT-TV the shooting resulted from a dispute between the woman and the alleged shooter. He did not say how they were related.

Allen said 21-year-old Dalton Stidham was charged with two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.

Allen identified the victims as 20-year-old Caitlin Cornett and 53-year-old Jackie Cornett. The teenager’s name was not released.
