EARLINGTON, Ky. (WFIE) - The suspect involved in the fatal shooting is now in jail.

The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office says 32-year-old Dennis Stone, of Madisonville, has been arrested in Davidson County, Tennessee, after turning himself into the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department early Saturday morning.

14 News was told that Detective Joe Stratton and deputies worked throughout the night to obtain warrants. They also worked with MNPD to get Stone served with those warrants.

According to authorities, the Sheriff’s Office will begin the process of extraditing Stone back to Kentucky this week.

The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office previously confirmed that a woman died and a child was taken to the hospital after a shooting that happened at the Earlington Ideal Market.

The Sheriff’s Office has identified the shooting victim as 30-year-old Nicole Merrell of Madisonville. Hopkins County Sheriff Matt Sanderson said the toddler-aged child was hospitalized for gunshot wounds but is expected to fully recover.

Meanwhile, the Sheriff confirmed the alleged shooter and the female victim have children together. 14 News spoke with a woman who says Stone and Merrell have a daughter.
