Lawyer: Video shows shooting was self-defense

Posted: Updated:

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The attorney for two Tennessee men charged with shooting two others in southern Kentucky says there's video that shows the men fired in self-defense.           

The Kentucky New Era reports the comments were made Wednesday when the men, 23-year-old Hersey Mitchell and 22-year-old Louis Spencer, appeared with attorney Rick Bolin Christian County Circuit Court for a hearing.

Mitchell is facing a murder charge in the fatal shooting of Shannon Fairley while Spencer is facing an assault charge for a shooting that injured Desmond Leavell. The shootings took place in September outside a convenience store in Oak Grove.           

Bolin said video from the store shows Fairley threatening Mitchell before he was shot and one of the alleged victims shooting at Spencer before he returned fire.
