LONDON, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a Kentucky man had suffered a deadly gunshot wound during an argument with his grandfather.

The Lexington Herald-Leader quotes a Laurel County's Sheriff's Office statement as saying the disagreement happened Sunday morning between 26-year-old Anthony Ryan Thompson and his grandfather.

The sheriff's office says at some point during the "scuffle" a pistol fired, and the shot stuck Thompson in his chest. Thompson died at the scene.

Authorities will present the case to a grand jury for possible charges after an investigation.

Further details have not been released.
