UPDATE: Law enforcement has released information about the suspect tied to the shooting of Bobby Langston.

According to a probable cause statement, Kevin James Ash, 33, of Lebanon called the Lebanon Police Department after shooting his step-brother, Langston. Ash had gotten into a verbal fight with other members of the family when Langston got involved. Ash was arguing with their father when Langston interrupted to stop the fight. According to police, Ash shot Langston, and then told their father that he would kill him “just like I did your son, stepping up on me, [expletive].”

Ash allegedly stashed the handgun in a shop area and called the police. He then played a recording of the argument that he captured on his phone to the police.

Ash is charged with two felonies: second-degree murder and armed criminal action.
