KSP Involved in Fulton County Shooting

shooting 300FULTON COUNTY, Ky. (7/8/13) – On Sunday July 7, 2013 at approximately 11:20 PM, Kentucky State Police (KSP) received a 911 call of “shots fired” in an apartment at the Royal Ridge Apartment Complex in Fulton County.

The Kentucky State Police Dispatch center transferred the 911 call to Fulton County dispatch and notified a Trooper of the call. A KSP Trooper arrived on scene at 11:42 PM to back up a Fulton City and South Fulton City Police Officers.

A subject was barricaded inside his apartment and was refusing verbal commands to come outside. After a brief standoff, the subject exited his apartment and fired shots at the Officers. Officers and a KSP Trooper returned fire striking the subject. The subject went back inside his residence before exiting again without further incident.

The individual was transported by ambulance to Parkway Regional Hospital, where he was later air lifted to a Memphis hospital for his injuries.

The individual will be facing two counts of Criminal Attempt of Murder on a Police Officer.

Kentucky State Police is continuing its investigation.
