"CHARLESTON, TN — Deputies searched the home where three people were fatally shot and a fourth was seriously wounded Friday.
"Bradley County Sheriff's spokesman Bob Gault says Charles Boling Sr., 67, Gail Boling, 65, and their son, Charles Boling Jr., 47, were shot and killed inside Boling Jr's home. Gault said Boling Sr. shot and killed his wife and son before turning the gun on himself Friday morning.
"Gault says Boling's wife had traveled from their Etowah home Thursday night to stay with their son and his friend.
"The son's friend, who neighbors have identified as Kenneth Kilgore, 33, and also lived in the home, was flown to Erlanger with multiple gunshot wounds. Gault says he was in intensive care at last check.
"Deputies were called to the home at 325 Baker Bridge Road shortly before 7:00 a.m. They discovered the bodies when they arrived at the home.
"Neighbors [said] the property is owned by Charles Boling Jr., a man they describe as a `nice guy`.
"Investigators say a number of weapons were found inside the home and have been sent to a lab as forensic evidence. The victims' bodies have been taken to the UT Forensic Center for autopsies.
"Investigators remain at the scene, they don't believe anyone else was involved in the shooting."
