David Hampton Wiki – David Hampton Bio
A Kentucky teacher tried to bring her three children to safety after her husband opened fire in their home in Perry County, but one of the two children shot has died.
According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, 36-year-old David Hampton allegedly shot two of his children at a home on or near Montgomery County Road on Tuesday morning. The children’s mother, reportedly a teacher in the Perry County school system, fled to her parents ’house next door.
Paramedics saw that two out of three children were shot there. The children were taken to a nearby hospital and a 2-year-old was reported dead there.
“It’s just a terrible thing,” Perry County Sheriff Joe Engle told the news source. “It shocked the whole community.”
A GoFundMe for the family identifies the mother as Christy Hampton and the deceased child as Sunday Rose.
According to the report, the other injured boy was finally flown to a hospital in Johnson City, Tennessee, and his condition remained stable.
It was reported that the mother and third child were not harmed.
Police sources told the newspaper that the violent attack seemed planned ahead of time.
Hampton faces multiple charges including murder, domestic violence, attempted murder, and two immoral dangers. There is a prior criminal history of drunkenness and nuisance crimes, but no previous violent crimes record.
