Multiple police officers injured in Eastern Kentucky shooting

ALONE, Ky. † Several police officers were shot and injured Thursday while trying to issue a search warrant in eastern Kentucky, authorities said.

A suspect was taken into custody and at least one person was killed, Floyd County Sheriff John Hunt told WYMT-TV. The sheriff’s department described the shooting as “deadly” in a Facebook post early Friday, without providing further details.

Hunt had told local media that the suspect opened fire on Thursday night at deputies serving a court-issued arrest warrant in connection with a domestic violence situation.

Governor Andy Beshear described the episode as “a barricade situation with a shooting,” in a short statement on Twitter.

Hunt said several officers were taken to different hospitals in the region.
