State trooper fatally shoots 1 man in Kentucky

November 02, 2017 - 7:34 AM

PIPPA PASSES, Ky. - Kentucky State Police say a trooper fatally shot a man who tried to hit him with a car.

State police spokesman Jody Sims told WYMT-TV that Trooper Leo Slone and Knott County Sheriff's Deputy Robbie Slone were serving a warrant Wednesday night when they discovered Christopher Jacobs underneath a mobile home.

Sims says Jacob headed to a nearby car and officers tried to get him out. Jacobs accelerated into the deputy's vehicle as Slone attempted to forcibly remove him from the car. Sims says the man put the vehicle into reverse and aimed it at the trooper, who then fired shots.

The officers attempted to perform CPR, but Jacobs died of his injuries.

Kentucky State Police are investigating the shooting.
