Kentucky State Police say a man shot his girlfriend's father, just before 6:00am Wednesday, at a home on Spring Branch in the Pinetop community of Knott County.

Troopers say a preliminary investigation indicates 43-year-old Donnie Gibson of Pinetop went to his daughter’s home and confronted her boyfriend, 25-year-old Dillon Cornett. Police say it appears Gibson initiated an altercation with Cornett while inside the house.

Cornett reportedly got a gun and shot it in Gibson's direction. State Police say Gibson was hit and died at the scene.

No criminal charges have been filed at this time. State Police say the investigation is continuing, and will be presented to a Knott County Grand Jury.

A family feud turned deadly on Wednesday when a man was shot and killed by his daughter's boyfriend.

The shooting happened on Spring Branch Road in the Pinetop Community of Knott County.

Police say the boyfriend, 25-year-old Dillon Cornett, claims he shot 43-year-old Donnie Gibson in self-defense.

Gibson's daughter says her dad kicked Cornett in the face with his steel toe boot and then lunged at him, which is when Cornett grabbed a gun and fired.

Police say that one person living in the house walked down the road to the neighbors house and told them to call 911.

By the time police arrived it was too late.

Gibson's daughter says her boyfriend and father always fought but she never thought their fighting would turn fatal

Killing a man will be hard to justify, considering he was simply getting his butt kicked. But if the boot was in fact a steel-toe and if the man was kicking him in the head with it, then the self-defense claim might hold up in court, especially since the victim's daughter stated it was a steel-toe boot and that he was indeed kicking him in the head, which likely insinuates he was trying to kill the boyfriend. It will be an interesting trial to say the least.

what would you do if soomeone came into your house and started beating your ass. im sure you wouldnt drop to your knees and pray for god to forgive him. if you do you are a idiot. no one would lay there and die, anyone expecting them too needs to have a mri because they have brain damage. there is only 2 things you can do when someone is trying to kill you, die or defend yourself however you have to. i dont know the full details im not saying who was right and wrong everyone needs to reach out too both families it is a tragedy on both ends

Chill out brother, LOL. If you go back and re-read my last post (before this one), you will notice that I said the killing may very well be justified. I agree with you that if someone was kicking me (or you) in the head with a steel-toed boot, we would both probably shoot him too, if we had access to a gun. I sure wouldn't lay there and worry about going to jail if I shot him, because I'd rather save my own life.

So again I say, it will be a very interesting trial. One man is dead and the other is in jail. It will all come down the "self-defense" claim. If self-defense can be justified, then the guy will walk. If not, he will go to the big house. Time will tell:)

If he hadn't been beating on his woman he wouldn't have had to worry bout getting his brains kicked out! That was why it started. The news don't tell that part.

Actually he did not go the the house to defend his daughter, he went due to an incident involving a motorcycle. He went with the intentions of killing the boy and told him that's what he was there to do. All I ask is that people know the details before they start talking trash.

First of all one man is dead and the other has to live with it.. Both have families that love them very much so when you get on here talking this garbage just remember that their families can get on here and read this.. And just for the record "self defense" is not just a made up term there is such a thing as self defense.. And you get on here so casually posting about how interesting it will be to watch this play out all I can say to anyone who finds this to be interesting is that you are simply ridiculous

I agree with the part that if somebody is trying to kill you then you gotta fight back. Everybody has the RIGHT to defend their self, especially in your own home !!!!

I'm sad that a man died but IF he really did go into another another man's home and start beating him, he practically asked for what happened to him.

i heard the cops declared it self defence.if dillon was in her home beating her and more or less holding her against her will and and donnie was defending his daughter. if the fight was over and he was out of harms way. the cops wouldnt have declared it self defence and released him. the length of a gun barrel dont mean you are out of harms way if the guy is still comming at you. if dillon was beating her he needed his ass kicked
