An armed intruder broke into the home of a former Kentucky lawmaker on Tuesday, opening fire and killing the politician’s adult daughter, authorities said.

The home invasion unfolded at about 4:30 a.m., inside the home of one-time state Rep. C. Wesley Morgan on Willis Branch Road in Madison County, state police said.

After 32-year-old Jordan Morgan was fatally shot, her dad pulled his weapon and took aim at the intruder, police said.

“Gunshots were then exchanged between the homeowner and intruder,” according to the Kentucky State Police statement.

“As a result, the homeowner sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and was transported to the University of Kentucky Hospital, where he was treated and released. The armed suspect left the residence after the shooting, and no arrests have been made at this time.”
