    HAZARD, Ky. Kentucky state police say a 15-year veteran has been placed on administrative leave after shooting and killing a suspect who had pointed a gun at him.

    Trooper Tony Watts, spokesman for state police post 13 in Hazard, says Trooper Ben McCray was conducting a welfare check in the Jackhorn community of Letcher County when the shooting occurred.

    Watts says in a news release that when McCray went to the home of Terry Wayne Taulbee on Friday, Taulbee displayed a weapon, approached the trooper and refused to comply with a demand to put down the weapon.

    Watts says when the suspect raised the weapon in the direction of McCray, McCray fired. Taulbee was pronounced dead at the scene by the Letcher County coroner.

    McCray was not injured. The incident is under investigation.

    Not much information. Hazard, KY is fairly close to WV so it made our newspaper. Good that the Trooper was uninjured.

    I'm from the Huntington, WV area and read that in the Herald Dispatch's site as well. Glad the trooper came out ok.

    Only 'maroooons' point guns at state troopers...and usually just once.

    Suicide by trooper? If so, what a burden for the trooper to unfairly have to assume.

    Totally.

    I was raised from a young age to follow orders from law enforcement. You can figure things out afterwards when cooler heads have prevailed.

    Hazard, Ky. is deep in the coal mining area, and those folks can be a little different. Let's say, I'm not planning my vacation there.
