State Police are looking into a shooting in Clay County, where they said three men went turkey hunting Thursday morning and two of them were shot -- one fatally.

Troopers said when the three men got to the top of a ridge, someone opened fire on them.

One of the men who was hit, 28-year-old Brian Griffin, was flown to St. Joseph's Hospital in London. He was pronounced dead on arrival by the Laurel County Coroner.

The other man was airlifted to UK Hospital and is currently listed in stable condition.

The third person was not hurt and called 911 after the shooting.

According to the ClayCoNews, the three hunters may have interrupted a meth lab operation, causing a suspected meth cook to open fire.
