Deputies say the shooting happened on Natures Bend Road about 9 miles from London.

Deputies say Michael Allen, 29, his girlfriend, Ashley Beckner, 26, and their three-year-old daughter were visiting Charles Allen, who is Michael Allen's father, at his home when an argument broke out between the younger Allen and Beckner.
