One Fatality in Officer Involved Shooting in Harlan County

Kentucky State Police Post 10 Harlan Detectives are investigating an officer involved shooting incident that occurred at a residence on Country Estates Road in the Baxter community of Harlan County. Preliminary investigation indicates that around 2:45pm, two Troopers arrived at the residence on Country Estates Road investigating a complaint. Upon arrival, a male subject, later identified as 36-year-old Bradley Grant of Baxter, fled on foot inside the residence. Troopers pursued after Grant. As Troopers entered the residence, they were confronted by Grant, who had a shotgun in his possession and began walking towards both Troopers. The subject refused several loud verbal commands to drop his weapon. A trooper fired his weapon, striking Grant. He was transported to Harlan ARH Hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. No Troopers were injured during the incident. Both Troopers have been placed on administrative leave, which is standard protocol. The investigation is ongoing.
