Kentucky attorney shot and killed outside his law office

SOMERSET, Ky. (WATE) - A Kentucky defense attorney was shot and killed outside of his law office by a man who wanted his help but was turned down.

Police said Mark Stanziano, 57, was shot at least four times Friday morning by a man who lives across the street.

Officials also said the suspect was waiting for him and that witnesses described him wordlessly shooting the attorney. A police report says the suspect told officers that he shot Stanziano because the lawyer declined to help him with a problem Thursday night and laughed at him.
