Police identify victim, arrest 2 suspects in Morgantown shooting

Bradley Price, 20, found dead in parking lot

MORGAN COUNTY, Ind. - Police arrested two men in connection with a homicide investigation after a man was found shot to death in the parking lot of a Morgantown liquor store.

Homicide investigators said Bradley Price, 20, of Nineveh, died from an apparent gunshot wound Wednesday night on State Road 252 and 135, in the heart of downtown Morgantown.

Morgan County Sheriff Robert Downey said Justen Knapp, 19, and Bryan Wooldridge, 21, were arrested in connection with the shooting.

Knapp was charged with murder and Wooldridge was charged with assisting a criminal, officials said. 

The initial hearing for Knapp and Wooldridge will be in Martinsville at 10:30 a.m. Friday.

A resident who lives on a nearby street said he was shocked by the incident.

"I've lived here for 53 years and I've never in my life seen anything like this here, ever," he said. "It's strange. I've traveled all the surrounding counties during my working life and I've seen it in other places, but never anything like that here."
