Man charged with shooting Shively officer will be released

LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- The man charged with shooting a Shively Police officer in 2016 will be released later in March.

Kenneth Probus was granted shock probation and will be released March 31.

Last January, Probus shot Detective Wes Singleton while officers were serving a drug warrant on his home.

Probus claims he did not know it was police entering his home but says he thought it was an intruder.

Probus's lawyer says he is ready to move past the case and begin a new life.

“I think he will lead a very good life, now that he's out, he'll be a model probationer. His actual release day is March 31, then he'll be on home incarceration 90 days,” Probus’ attorney Leland Hulbert said.

Officer Singleton has also dropped a civil suit he had against Probus.
