(KY)One dead, two in custody after attempted burglary

VERONA, KY (FOX19) - A home intruder has died after being shot by the owner during an attempted burglary.

The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. on Monday when the intruder broke into a home in the 15,000 block of Violet Road in Verona. Police say that Earl Jones, 92, was awakened by a noise in the basement and armed himself with a .22 caliber rifle.

Once the suspect entered the home through the basement, Jones shot the suspect in the chest and called his neighbor, who then called 911.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found the outside basement door propped open, but no one other than Jones was present at the residence.

Shortly after the shooting, Kenton County Police responded to a call on Courtney Road of a man who had been shot. They then found Lloyd (Adam) Maxwell, 24, of Richmond, and two others in a 2001 Chevrolet Impala.
