LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A man wanted by police in the slaying of a Lexington man appeared at a television station to turn himself in to authorities.

Brandon Lamont Bailey went to WLEX's studios at around 10 a.m. Monday, saying he wanted to turn himself in to police, the TV station reports (http://bit.ly/YU6hzy).

Bailey was wanted by police for the shooting death of 22-year-old Anthony Logan, who was killed Dec. 1 outside a Lexington apartment. Police say 28-year-old Bailey shot Logan after the two were involved in a fight.

Bailey says he was planning to flee to Louisiana but family members convinced him to turn himself in because he claims he shot Logan in self-defense.

Police were called to the TV station shortly after Bailey arrived.
