A gunman shot his gun into a car, killing a man and a woman and injuring a 12-year-old girl at Hazard Community and Technical College.

Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen said the shooting resulted from a dispute between the alleged gunman and a woman who was one of those killed, 20-year-old Caitlin Cornett.

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

Allen identified the male victim as Cornett’s uncle, Jackie Cornett, 53. He said the wounded girl was Jackie Cornett’s daughter, and that she remained in critical condition Wednesday morning at University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington.

Allen said Caitlin Cornett, who was a student at the college, and Stidham had a child together and had met to exchange custody of the child. Allen said police are still investigating what led up to the shooting.
