    Unhappy Kentucky Fued

    Two Perry County men are dead and another is in the hospital with gunshot wounds after a property dispute between two families escalated into violence Thursday.

    Ronnie Browning and Lawrence Joseph, Jr., both of Viper, were killed in the shootout and a third man, Emerson Paul Davidson of Hazard was hospitalized in fair condition. State police say two feuding families took their case to court, but it wasn't settled the way they had hoped, and they took matters into their own hands.

    Land located at the top of a muddy driveway that separates two pieces of land was in dispute. Last week, a judge declared the road public access. The family feud had been over who owns what. David Pratt owns the property the road sits on and has heard the two families fight over the property at the top for more than a year. He said the two families met on the property Thursday morning and that's when the shooting started.

    Police still aren't sure who's responsible for the deaths. Pratt said he isn't surprised the dispute ended so violently, and expects the arguing to continue.

    So far, no charges have been filed.

    Should change the names to the "Hatfields and McCoys".

    Sad isn't it.

    What else would you expect from Perry county? There are some strange ways of life in that neck of the woods. You find the same crap in Floyd, Pike, Johnson, Martin, Knott, Letcher, and Harlan counties. Talk to anyone with the Kentucky State Police or Fire Marshals Office who’ve ever worked in those areas and you will hear some stories.

    This kind of thing even happens in Southwestern West Virginia on a frequent basis.
