The shooting occurred at a mobile home off Sutton Drive in Dayhoit around 9 p.m. Also shot at the mobile home was Mark Travis Whitaker Jr., 22, of Loyall.
According to Kentucky State Police Sgt. Damon Gayheart, Whitaker and the juvenile were at Maiden's home when Maiden allegedly shot Whitaker. The juvenile then shot Maiden.
Gayheart and trooper Jason Adams responded to the shooting scene to gather information. Upon their arrival, they found Maiden lying in the front yard.
Gayheart said the shooting apparently took place inside the residence and Maiden made it to the front yard, where he collapsed.
Harlan County Coroner Philip Bianchi arrived at the shooting scene, where he pronounced Maiden dead.
Gayheart said two other individuals were with Whitaker and the juvenile, Mark Whitaker Sr. and Debbie Hall. Whitaker Sr. and the juvenile allegedly drove the injured Whitaker to the Harlan ARH Hospital following the shooting.
Gayheart said a request was made by KSP to the Harlan City Police Department to go to the hospital and assess the situation there.
Harlan City Police Sgt. Winston Yeary and officers Marvin J. Lipfird and Danny Ball responded.
The Harlan City Police officers took custody of the juvenile, and during a patdown search of her, a handgun was confiscated. The juvenile was transported to Post 10, along with the weapon, and turned over to the state police.
A court-designated worker was requested to come to Post 10 because the crime involved a juvenile.
The juvenile was later lodged in a juvenile detention facility in Breathitt County.
Whitaker was transported to Johnson City Medical Center by Harlan EMS. His condition was not available.
Kentucky State Police Det. Tim Hensley is in charge of the investigation. He was assisted by Lt. P.J. Burnett, Gayheart, Adams and trooper James Earl Hensley.
