GARFIELD, KY (WAVE) – One man is dead and a second person is in critical condition after a shooting at a vacant gas station in Garfield, Kentucky, according to the Breckinridge County Sheriff's Office.

The Breckinridge County Deputy Coroner said Johnny Ray Thompson, 34, from Irvington, Kentucky, died from multiple gunshot wounds in the parking lot of the former Ashland station, located off of U.S. 60, at 2 p.m. CST.

Deputies say the fight started after the two men got into a fight over a girlfriend.

The second shooting victim was shot in the head and taken to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment.

Wayne Nunley lives right across from the gas station and said he though the shots were someone knocking at his door.

"I walked outside and I saw the man fall to the ground.", Nunley said. "It makes you feel kind of crazy, don't it? What's the world coming to? that's what I'm wondering."

He said his wife was ready to me after he told her the news.

"It doesn't make you feel too good," Nunley said." Like I said [my wife] was ready to move today. She doesn't like it now. I told her I'm not moving. You can't run from everything."

Deputies said they are not looking for anymore suspects.
