Mayor of Hickman, Ky., fatally shot; suspect surrenders

HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) — The police chief of a western Kentucky city says the mayor has been fatally shot and a man has turned himself in to police.

Hickman Police Chief Tony Grogan said the incident occurred around 1 a.m. CST Monday and took the life of Hickman Mayor Charles Murphy at Murphy’s home, according to WYVY Radio in Union City, Tenn.

Police have charged 30-year-old Tommy Lattus with murder and he is held at the Fulton County Detention Facility. Grogan said Lattus came to the police station after the shooting and told officers he shot Murphy. Grogan did not give a motive.

The victim was in his second term as mayor and had served earlier terms on the city board.
