KSP dispatch received a call this morning from the Green County 911

center at approximately 10:35 AM CST.  A caller advised that there was a shooting at

a residence on Ky Hwy 218 and that there were multiple victims.  Upon arrival,

investigators learned that 4 persons had been shot.   Kentucky State Police Post 15 Detectives have

determined that

the shooting was domestic related and are now working a Murder/Suicide. 40-year-old

Barry Moore shot and killed his ex-wife, 43-year-old Pamela Moore.  The couple was

divorced but still living together.

The shooting occurred at a residence owned by 66-year-old Barbara Wright, located

just behind the Moore’s residence.  Detectives believe that Barry Moore pursued

Pamela Moore to the residence where he shot the victims.  Barbara Wright’s

granddaughter, 22-year-old Ashley Wright, was at the residence and was also shot.

Barry Moore then turned the weapon on himself and took his own life.

Pamela Moore died at the scene and Barry Moore died later at the Green County

Hospital.  Barbara and Ashley Wright are listed in critical condition at University

Hospital in Louisville.   An 11-year-old juvenile, the son of Barry and Pamela Moore, was

also at the residence but fled the scene and was not injured.  A .22 caliber rifle

was also recovered at the scene.  Autopsies are scheduled for Saturday at the State

Medical Examiner's office in Louisville.
