The sheriff’s office confirms that 45-year-old Albert Bloomfield was killed Sunday afternoon.
It happened around 3:30 at Bloomfield’s home in Salyersville.
We’re told he had been shot several times and was dead when emergency crews arrived.
Deputies arrested 31-year-old Jonathan Watkins, Bloomfield’s stepson.
Officials say Watkins surrendered at the scene.
He is currently behind bars at the Big Sandy Regional Jail, charged with murder of a police officer.
Officials have not yet determined a motive for the shooting.
An autopsy is scheduled for Bloomfield on Monday.
