Kentucky State Police from Post 9 responded to the call just after 3 p.m. to find Rodney Mullins, 43, dead from several gunshot wounds.The Floyd County Coroner’s office was called to the scene to pronounce Mullins dead.


The investigation led KSP officers to arrest Tyler Shehan, 23, in connection with the shooting. He is currently housed in the Floyd County Detention Center, facing one charge of murder and four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. KSP has said Shehan is originally from Louisville, but officials with the jail say he gave his address as a residence at Bypro.

On Wednesday, Shehan appeared before District Judge Jimmy Marcum for arraignment. A not guilty plea was entered for him. He is next due to appear in court on Tuesday.
