Ashburn killed looking for daughter
Bobby Ashburn suffered four gunshot wounds in the shooting.

A man was gunned down outside a Cherry Springs Road home Wednesday night after he went there looking for his daughter.
The fatally wounded man, Bobby Ashburn, 43, suffered four gunshot wounds, including one to the head, during the hail of gunfire.
His alleged killer, Michael Cody Mills, 27, has been charged with criminal homicide and is being held at Warren County Jail under $1 million bond.
According to Sheriff Jackie Matheny, the incident happened around 6 p.m. on Cherry Springs Road near Bratcher’s Crossroads at the home of Zachery Turner.
“Our information was that Mr. Ashburn went there to check on his daughter,” said Matheny, adding they are unsure why he believed his daughter was there since it turned out she was not at the residence at the time of the shooting.
Matheny said no sooner had Ashburn exited his vehicle, Mills stepped out with a 45-caliber pistol and opened fire.
“The way we understand it there was no fight, no argument, no nothing,” Matheny said. “It appears he (Mills) came out and started shooting.”
After reportedly killing Ashburn, Mills placed the gun in a vehicle there and ran into a wooded area behind the house. He was caught a short time later when deputy Tony Taylor found him hiding in a nursery field.
“We aren’t sure what was behind it,” Matheny said.
Mills will appear for arraignment this Tuesday before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke.
