Several police officers wounded in eastern Kentucky shooting

ALLEN, Ky. (AP) — Several police officers have been shot and wounded while trying to serve a warrant in eastern Kentucky. Floyd County Sheriff John Hunt told WYMT-TV that a suspect was taken into custody and at least one person was killed. In a Facebook post, the sheriff’s department described the shooting as “deadly,” without providing further details. Earlier, Hunt told local media that the suspect opened fire on deputies who were serving a court-issued warrant on Thursday evening related to a domestic violence situation.
