(KMOV) – Iron County officials are investigating two separate shooting incidents in which two men were killed Saturday.

Iron County Police said 54-year-old Thomas Hennessey of Dedham, Maine, shot and killed 63-year-old Carl Jones in the Town and Country Grocery store parking lot in Ironton, Mo.

Shortly after that shooting, Hennessey was shot to death by an Ironton Police officer on Main Street.

Authorities said the officer involved in the shooting is on paid administrative leave while the investigation is conducted by the Missouri Highway Patrol's Drug and Crime Control Unit.

Police said there had been some sort of ongoing feud between the Hennessey and Jones. Hennessey was from the Ironton area before moving to Maine.
