LOUSVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Frankfort Police officers shot and killed a man they say pointed a gun at them during a confrontation on Sunday.
Police say they were responding to a 911 call from a woman trapped in a home on Winding Way Drive about 9:15 Sunday night. The woman said a man was pointing a gun at her and threatened to shoot anyone who came into the house.
Officers managed to get on the phone with the woman, who said she had gone into an area of the home away from the suspect. The Tactical Response and Hostage Negotiations Units established a perimeter around the home.
When the suspect came out of the house carrying a handgun, police say officers told him several times to drop the gun, but he pointed it at them. That's when officers fired, shooting and killing the suspect.
The two officers involved in the shooting are on administrative leave, which is standard policy. They are 31-year-old Todd Smither and 30-year-old Billy Graves, both of the Tactical Response Unit.
Frankfort Police detectives have done a preliminary review of the shooting and say they believe the officers used reasonable force in the circumstances. An internal investigation by the Frankfort Police Dept. is still underway. Kentucky State Police are also conducting an investigation, and its results will be forwarded to the Franklin County Commonwealth's Attorney.
