Police: Troopers fatally shoot man who wouldn’t drop gun
SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say troopers fatally shot a man who ended an hourslong standoff with officers by coming out of a residence and refusing orders to drop a gun. A state police statement says Shepherdsville police originally went there Tuesday night seeking 22-year-old Tyler Blevens, who was wanted on felony warrants including wanton endangerment of a police officer. State police were called when Blevens barricaded himself inside. It ended Wednesday morning when police say Blevens came out with a gun and didn’t respond to orders to drop the weapon. Authorities say troopers fired and Blevens was pronounced dead at the scene.
