LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
A May 9 shooting incident in Knox County has lead to the arrests of four people two of whom are from London.
Patrick B. Baker and Christopher Bradley Wagner, both 36, are being held in the Knox County Detention Center on charges of murder in the death of 29-year-old Donald Mills. The Scalf, Ky., resident was reportedly the victim of a home invasion in which two individuals allegedly identified themselves as law enforcement and entered Mills’ home, carrying firearms. Mills was shot during a struggle with one of the intruders, who left scene in a maroon four-door Ford F-150 with tinted windows, chrome steps and a chrome front push bar.
Mills’ wife took her wounded husband to a Knox County hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The investigation broke on Friday, May 16 with the arrests of Baker and Wagner around 7 p.m.
The following day, 30-year-old Elijah Messer of Dewitt, Ky., and 39-year-old Angela Mills of Scalf were arrested — also charged with murder.
The case remains under investigation by Kentucky State Police (KSP) Detective Bryan Johnson with KPS Post 10 based out of Harlan, Ky.
Additional arrests are expected, according to a KSP news release.
