Kentucky State Troopers fatally shoot man after they say he refused to drop gun

Posted: Updated:

FISTY, Ky. (AP) - A man has been shot and killed by Kentucky State Troopers after they say he threatened them with a gun.

Trooper First Class Jody Sims says in a news release that troopers responded Thursday night to a complaint of an intoxicated man who was fighting with people at a home in Fisty. The man, identified as 36-year-old Timothy Brandon Stacy, had a gun and had fired it several times.

Troopers arrived to find Stacy outside. Stacy ran inside and troopers told him to come outside unarmed, which Stacy ignored.

Sims says Stacy came outside with a gun. He ignored commands to drop the gun, waved the gun at troopers and threatened them. The troopers then shot Stacy, killing him.

Troopers Josh Huff and Charlie Moore, and Detective Chris Collins have been placed on administrative leave. The incident is being investigated.

The races of the troopers and the man who was killed weren't immediately available.
