Sep 23, 2013

DANVILLE, Ky. - Danville Police say a suspect who fatally shot three people at a downtown pawn shop remains at large.

Chief Tony Gray said at a news conference Monday that a van seen in the area could have been the suspect's vehicle and police are continuing to seek tips and information from the public.

The shop's owners, Michael Hockensmith and his wife Angela Hockensmith, were killed in the Friday shootings, along with Daniel P. Smith of Richmond.

Gray said Smith had a "business arrangement" with the store and had a weekly routine that included a stop there. He said police are trying to determine if Smith was robbed during the shooting.

Gray says Kentucky State Police and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are assisting in the investigation.
