Deadly morning shooting under investigation in Big Spring

BIG SPRING, TX (KWES) - Big Spring Police are investigating following a deadly shooting in Big Spring on Friday morning.

Authorities were called out to 600 Linda Lane in reference to a gunshot victim.

When officers arrived, they found, Paul Justin Kuhn, 47, was found dead with a gunshot to the chest.

According to the report, investigators learned that there was a domestic disturbance that led to the shooting.

Officers said it appears that Kuhn and his girlfriend were involved in a heated argument and her father, Stephen Forrest Oyler, entered the room armed with a sawed-off shotgun.

That's when Oyler fired the shotgun and hit Kuhn in the chest.

Police said Oyler has been arrested and charged with possession of a prohibited weapon as the length of the shotgun was illegal.

Officials say the investigation will determine if murder charges will be filed.

Kuhn's body has been sent to Lubbock for an autopsy.
