Investigators say argument over eggs triggered Kentucky man's trailer park shooting spree.

Residents of Kentucky's Mount Carmel community continue to struggle to make sense of a Saturday shooting spree that left six people dead, including the gunman.

Police say Stanley Nease, 47, shot five people, before turning the gun on himself.

Police identified two of the victims as the shooters wife, Sandra Neace and her daughter Sandra Strong.

Neighbors Dennis Turner, Teresa Fugate, and Tammy Kilborn were also shot and killed.

Witnesses say an argument at the breakfast table triggered the rampage.

They say Neace became first became enraged over how his eggs were cooked.

Cheyenne Strong, the 11-year-old daughter of victim Sandra Strong, says she took some orange juice meant for her and when her grandmother took it back, Neace got the gun.

He went on to shoot and kill her mother, grandmother and three others.

"He said if we didn't open the door, he was gonna shoot us, so I opened the door, and I told him not to shoot me, and he said I'm not gonna shoot you," Strong said.

Neighbors say Neace had been making threats about doing something on September 11th after his wife, Sandra, said she wanted a divorce.
