ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. — Kentucky State Police (KSP) are investigating after an officer with the Elizabethtown Police Department (EPD) shot and killed a man Tuesday night.
EPD spokesperson John Thomas said police were at a home on Pleasant View Dr. around 6 p.m. as part of a criminal investigation when an officer shot a man identified as a suspect.
It is unclear what events led up to the shooting, but Chris Denham with EPD said the investigation was related to a "very serious" domestic situation.
Denham confirmed that the man was killed in the shooting. The man's identity has not been released.
The officer who shot the man was not injured.
KSP will handle the investigation since it directly involves an EPD officer.
