COMBS — Kentucky State Police (KSP) say a Perry County man from the community of Combs was shot early Friday morning when he stepped outside his residence.

After receiving a call about someone being shot, KSP found Melvin Shane Gross lying inside of his residence with a gunshot wound to his face, investigators said.
