Steve Nunn is being treated at The Medical Center of Bowling Green for undisclosed injuries, and has not been charged with Amanda Ross’ murder. Nunn is listed as being in stable condition.
“Our units are working with the Lexington Police Department to determine if there’s any connection with Mr. Nunn in the homicide,” Jude said.
Jude said Steve Nunn was found on Friday morning in a Barren County cemetery, about 130 miles southwest of the scene of the shooting, and transported to the Bowling Green hospital to be treated for self-inflicted injuries.
Amanda Ross, 29, was fatally shot in Lexington at 6:36 a.m. Friday. The cause of death was listed as a gunshot wound and the death was being investigated as a homicide.
Nunn, son of former Republican Gov. Louie Nunn, ran unsuccessfully for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in 2003. He lost the bid for re-election to the state House in 2006 after 15 years as a state representative.
He returned to state government in 2007 as deputy secretary of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, but was put on administrative leave in February after being charged with domestic violence for slapping Amanda Ross. Nunn resigned in March.
