    LONDON, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a Laurel County sheriff’s deputy fatally shot a suspect during an altercation early Friday in southeastern Kentucky.


    Laurel County Sheriff Fred Yaden told WLEX-TV in Lexington that the deputy got into the altercation after chasing a vehicle with two suspects into a rural area where the suspects exited the vehicle. Yaden says the officer had to open fire, and one suspect was killed.


    Laurel County deputy coroner Kris Vanover says 35-year-old James Goforth of London was pronounced dead at the scene in the Daniel Boone National Forest near London.


    Vanover says the sheriff’s deputy and the other suspect were not injured.


    He says the coroner’s office was notified about 1:45 a.m. EDT

    Not much on this yet. Doesn't say if suspect was armed or not. Interesting to see how this shoot plays out.

    Sounds like Mr. Goforth was a slow learner...now his future learning curve has really slowed down.

    Sounds like they fixed his learning curve. Permanently.
