Scott Depot Man Fatally Shoots Neighbor

West Virginia State Police say Jeff Walker was sleeping on his couch at his house along Teays Valley Road in Scott Depot Tuesday afternoon when his dogs began barking, and he got up and found his neighbor Stephen King in his home. Walker says King pointed a gun at him, and that's when he shot King in the torso. King was taken to Putnam General  Hospital, where he died a short time later. Members of the Walker family told the West Virginia State Police that King was not welcome in their home, but he was in the process of stealing a handgun when the barking dogs woke Walker up. State Police say the investigation is continuing and the case has been turned over to the Grand Jury.
